Another ARC Arrival and Giveaway: The Heretic's Daughter

The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent

Publisher: Hachette Book Group

In 1752, Sarah Carrier Chapman, weak with infirmity, writes a letter to her granddaughter, revealing the secret she has closely guarded for six decades. . .

Her story begins more than a year before the Salem witch trials, when nine-year-old Sarah and her family arrive in a New England community already gripped by superstition and fear. As they witness neighbor pitted against neighbor, friend against friend, hysteria escalates--until more than two hundred men, women, and children have been swept into prison. Among them is Sarah's mother, Martha Carrier.

In an attempt to protect her children, Martha asks Sarah to commit an act of heresy -- a lie that will most surely condemn Martha even as it will save her daughter. (Back Cover)

I have 5 copies of The Heretic's Daughter to give away courtesy of Hachette Books!

This would be a great book club read - grab the Reading Group Guide!
