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. 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.

  • "Salem, Massachusetts, 1692. Young Sarah Carrier is bright and wilful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which her family lives. Her father is English in origin, quietly stoical but with a secret history. When her mother Martha, a herbalist, is accused of witchcraft, she makes Sarah promise not to stand up for her in court. As Sarah and her brothers are hauled into the prison themselves, the vicious cruelty of the trials becomes apparent. The Carrier family, starved and deprived of any decency, have to battle their way through the hysteria with the sheer willpower their mother has taught them."
