Friday Finds hosted by Should Be Reading asks us to share what great books we heard about or discovered in the past week.
My find for this week is a book called Daughters of the Witching Hill by Mary Sharratt. It will be released April 7, 2010 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and here’s a bit about it from Amazon.com:
Sharratt interweaves well-researched historical details of the 1612 Pendle witch-hunt with a beautifully imagined story of strong women, family, and betrayal. Daughters of Witching Hill is a powerful novel of intrigue and revelation.
Does that not sound good? It sure does to me. I love books having anything to do witches and witch-hunts. Lucky for me I will be participating in Mary Sharratt’s blog tour this April 2010. How about you – what did you find this week?
I had written it on my list, before I even read the wonderful write up. I love this style of book, I have always found the witch hunts and trials fascinating.
Yes, yes, yes, it does sound good!
Oh I love the plot of this one! Oh yes, u r lucky this sounds fantastic!

Dar~this sounds so good! I recently finished The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and was slightly disappointed. I love this genre and I hope this will be really good one. I look forward to reading it. My recent find is In The Shadow of The Crown~Jean Plaidy. Great book so far!

I'm like you, Dar. I love reading books that have to do with witches and witch hunts. I hadn't heard of this one before. Thanks for giving me a heads up!
Mary Sharratt says
Thank you so much, Darlene! I'm really looking forward to the blog tour!
I think it sounds great Dar. 🙂 Great find.
This looks fabulous! I have to say that books related to this subject always intrigue me. I am so glad you hi-lighted it! Totally hitting my wish list!
And it has been too long since I have been by! I love your background!
I've never heard of 1612 Pendle Witch hunt, that's one of the reasons why I love historical fiction…learning new and interesting things. Sounds good, can't wait until you review it!
This book sounds great. My Friday Find is a classic. As a writer who incorporates western landscapes in my books, I was excited to learn about Wallace Stegner from a friend. I just started reading Angle of Repose–an oldie, but goodie.
I just read about this one. I soooo want to read it. I may be getting it for a magazine I review for. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
