The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave

In this delightfully queer historical fiction set in 1617 Norway, all 40 of an island's men have drowned in a brutal storm at sea. Left behind, Maren Magnusdatter, 20, and the other women must defy the norms of the day to survive.

But then a Scottish tyrant named Absalom arrives to root out suspected witchcraft, along with his pretty young wife Ursa. As Maren and Ursa grow closer, dangers new and old threaten to destroy them all.

Heather has two mummies

Heather's favourite number is 2 - she has 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 pets and 2 lovely mummies. But when Heather goes to school for the first time, someone asks her about her daddy - and Heather doesn't have a daddy!

When the class all draw portraits of their families - not a single drawing is the same. Heather and her classmates realise that it doesn't matter who makes up a family, the important thing is that all the people in it love one another very much.
