Imagine Being Accused of Witchcraft in Salem ~ Condemn Me Not

“This woman was one of the most impudent, scurrilous, wicked creatures of this world; and she did now throughout her whole trial discover herself to be such a one. Yet when she was asked what she had to say for herself, her chief plea was that she had led a most virtuous and holy life.” —Reverend Cotton Mather, 1692

USA Today Bestselling author Heather B. Moore brings the life of her 10th great-grandmother to center stage. Susannah North Martin, accused of witchcraft in 1692, joins five women in the Salem Jail, all sentenced to death for their crimes. Amidst tragedy, Susannah finds hope and compassion as she remembers a well-loved life, and readers discover that love reaches far beyond the grave as Susannah faces the magistrates in Salem.

This is a beautiful book, inside and out.  Susannah North Martin, the main character for this historical fiction book really existed in history,  She was accused and condemned in Salem.  She also happens to be the author's 10th great-grandmother.  I am sure that Susannah is pleased to have her story told. 

Coming March 14th.
