Now here’s a great giveaway for you all! I’ve got 5 paperback copies of The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent up for grabs courtesy of Valerie at Hachette Book Group. This book is on my ever growing stack of books I must make time to read. I’ve heard so many good things about it. It is definitely a priority for me this winter. It’s a must read for book clubs, especially those who enjoy stories about witches, etc. and there is a great reading group guide to help you and your book club along with your discussions.
Here’s a bit about the book…
Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried and hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live.
Often at odds with one another, mother and daughter are forced to stand together against the escalating hysteria of the trials and the superstitious tyranny that led to the torture and imprisonment of more than 200 people accused of witchcraft.
This is the story of Martha’s courageous defiance and ultimate death, as told by the daughter who survived.
Kathleen Kent is a tenth generation descendent of Martha Carrier. She paints a haunting portrait, not just of Puritan New England, but also of one family’s deep and abiding love in the face of fear and persecution.
