The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried, and hanged as a witch in Salem. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live. Often at odds with each other, mother and daughter are forced to stand together against the escalating hysteria and superstitious tyranny. This is the story of Martha's courageous defiance and ultimate death, as told by the daughter who survived.
