I read - and loved!- another copy of this a few years ago, link here, so was very happy to find another copy for release. The author is a descendant of Martha Carrier, the main character in this wonderful historic novel.

Comments from earlier copy:

I absolutely loved it! I've lived within an hour's drive of Salem all my life and now realize how little I actually know about this terrible period in local history. Somehow, I found this book even more powerful than some of the classics about this time, such as Arthur Miller's The Crucible (which I've seen performed several times). It's inspired me to learn more; I've spent hours already reading online and have ordered some non-fiction about the witch trials as well.

Amazon:
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.
