New Additions To The TBR Pile

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.


  1. This has been on my TBR ever since it came out. In fact a blog friend sent me her copy when she finished it and I still haven't gotten to it yet.


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
