Fascinating look at life in the Puritan 1600s. Author does an excellent job of describing life and the hardships of the time. I felt like I was transported and could “see” my surroundings.

Excellent First Novel on a Lesser-Known Witchcraft Trial

I follow the author's excellent blog on genealogy, which I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject. I thought this debut novel was well researched and written. The period detail is especially good. I look forward to reading Ms Roberts second book.

My love of genealogy was the genesis for my first book, Weave a Web of Witchcraft. My first foray into writing was blogging. It was love at first type. I currently write two blogs, The Family Connection, which deals mostly with my New England ancestors and their English ancestors and Indian Reservations, which oddly enough is about mythical Indian ancestors, none of which are mine. My second book ...more
