The Heretic's Daughter

The Heretic's Daughter  by Kathleen Kent]

The Heretic's Daughter is a sad and haunting story, told through the eyes of 11 year old Sarah Carrier, following her family through the years before and after the Salem witch trials.  As morbid as it sounds, I love reading about a Salem witch trials.  What an interesting, and sad time in our country's history.  A somewhat disappointing ending, after all the build up through out the book, but overall this was great, and fast read.

✭✭✭✭ (out of 5 stars)
Rated: PG  A few suggestive situations and talk, but very mild.
Recommended: Yes, in a pinch when you can't find anything else.
