The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent – Giveaway

I am excited to be able to offer this book, The Heretic’s Daughter for giveaway thanks to Valerie at Hachette Book Group

This giveaway is now closed 11/15/2009

hereticMartha 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.
