The Heretic's Daughter: A Novel

The Heretic's Daughter: A Novel

Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried, and hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts. This is the haunting story of Carrier's courageous defiance and ultimate death, as told by her daughter, Sarah

I really enjoyed this historical novel. I was engaged right from the beginning and I at one point found myself googleing "Cones of Sugar" to see what that was exactly. I felt emotionally tied up in the characters and by the end of the story I really felt that I had also learned a little more about what it may have been like to live through that terrible period of history.
