The Manningtree Witches, by A.K. Blakemore

Staff Pick
Welcome to Manningtree, Essex, 1643. The English Civil War has taken most of the men, leaving women to their own devices in a world where Puritanism is on the rise and rumors are spreading about strange figures and shapes in the night, animals affected by an unknown illness, and a young boy suffering from mania. Rebecca West, unmarried and with little to do, lives with her often drunk and confrontational mother, the idleness of her days broken only by churchgoing, market outings, and  occasional encounters with young, handsome John Edes. But she believes she can do more and be more....At times dark and disturbing, Blakemore's unsettling yet lyrical debut will have you turning the pages ever faster.
