Beautifully written, and doesn't shy away from the less rosy side of 1500s Scandanavia

I've read lots of comments about this book saying that it's inappropriate for teens, and there's no denying that there are some confronting depictions of sexual assault and disease. However, teenagers are far from unaware of these horrible happenings and it's good to have a book that doesn't shy away from these often unspoken of topics. As a 13 year old reader, this book hasn't brainwashed me into thinking that violence against women or sexual assault is in anyway acceptable; it's done the opposite. It's good to have a book that atleast acknowledges the suffering of women that have had to deal with these atrocities.
