GIVEAWAY - THE HERETIC'S DAUGHTER



I am positively thrilled and honored to be hosting this giveaway, which happens to be my first.

The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent is being released today and is a fascinating historical novel about Martha Carrier who was found guilty of being a witch during the Salem Witch Trials and subsequently hung.

I read this book in July (review here) and began communication with Hachette Book Group whose representative generously offered THREE copies of The Heretic's Daughter to be given away here.

The rules are simple. Just leave a comment on this post, one entry per person. You don't have to have a blog to enter, but please make sure I have a way to contact you if you've won. This giveaway is open to US and Canadian addresses only, sorry to those outside these areas. I will close the comments and draw the 3 winners on September 10. Good luck!

Traveling through North Carolina a few years ago, we visited Winston Salem, hoping there would be some hint of witches and such ... alas, no

Just reading now "A Thousand Splendid Suns" ... the hanging of Marianne's mother was horrifying.

I would LOVE to win a copy of this book. The Salem Witch Trials have always fascinated me. Did you watch the tv adaptation with Kirstie Alley a few years ago - it was excellent. I must see if it is out on dvd as I would like to see it again!

Thanks for writing such a great blog!
