The Manningtree Witches
SIGNED COPIES WHILE STOCKS LAST
Fear takes root in the women of Manningtree when the Witchfinder General comes to town. Caught amidst betrayal and persecution, what must Rebecca West do to survive?England, 1643. Parliament is battling the King; the war between the Roundheads and the Cavaliers rages.
Puritanical fervour has gripped the nation, and the hot terror of damnation burns black in every shadow. In Manningtree, depleted of men since the wars began, the women are left to their own devices. At the margins of this diminished community are those who are barely tolerated by the affluent villagers – the old, the poor, the unmarried, the sharp-tongued.
