The Heretics Daughter by Kathleen KentMartha 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 Marthas courageous defiance and ultimate death, as told by the daughter who survived.
Kathleen Kent is a tenth generation descendant of Martha Carrier. She paints a haunting portrait, not just of Puritan New England, but also of one familys deep and abiding love in the face of fear and persecution.

I noticed everyone is getting into the spirit of National Family History Month with skeletons, witches, and even a few headstones springing up in front yards. Well done! As part of my own celebration I decided to finally join a lineage society. You know, those organizations that only accept members with ancestors who meet certain elevated standards, like Daughters of the American Revolution, or Colonial Dames of America, or… the Associated Daughters of Early American Witches. And they sound like their meetings must be way more fun:. I will let you know how it goes.

The book finally arrived. There is something more in here. Of course, I poured through it, wondering if my own family might be included. There is a handy index in the back, as well. And you might be surprised how many national figures from our early American history actually show up in this book!
