In 1627, Barbary pirates raided the coast of Iceland and abducted some 400 people. Among the captives sold into slavery in Algiers were a pastor, his wife and children. In her bestselling take on the story, writer and broadcaster Sally Magnusson tells of Ásta, the pastor’s wife who endures her changed circumstances with the one thing she brought from home: the stories in her head.
