Shades of Salem Witch Trials! This historic novel so scared me, that I actually had to put it down and walk away. Of course, I did pick it back up and finish reading it. I am so very thankful that I live in the 21st Century and not the 16th.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I quickly connected to the protagonist, Mia, and her sickly child, Alma. What a heavy load of problems Mia bears. She's married to hard-to-please Bjorn, the stern sheriff and cares for his bedridden mother. Even the ladies of the small village shun her. This gives Mia a very lonely existence. I hurt for her. As the plot unfolds, I feared for her.
An extensive Author's Note section, along with Discussion Questions and Supernatural Housekeeping are all included at the end of the novel.
Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and David C. Cook for my copy.
