Summary
THE MOST THRILLING HISTORICAL DEBUT OF 2017 'The number of women my brother Matthew killed, so far as I can reckon it, is one hundred and six...' 1645. When Alice Hopkins' husband dies in a tragic accident, she returns to the small Essex town of Manningtree, where her brother Matthew still lives. But home is no longer a place of safety. Matthew has changed, and there are rumours spreading through the town: whispers of witchcraft, and of a great book, in which he is gathering women's names. To what lengths will Matthew's obsession drive him? And what choice will Alice make, when she finds herself at the very heart of his plan?
Summary
A tale inspired by the witch hunts of mid-17th-century England follows the experiences of Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkin's disgraced sister—who, upon returning, pregnant and unmarried, to her brother's home—discovers how he is targeting the marginalized women of their community
