What We're Reading - The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent

The Wolves of Andover, by Kathleen Kent, is a prequel to the author’s acclaimed The Heretic’s Daughter, another historical tale of the Old World (England after Charles I’s execution) and the New World in America. Plain-spoken Martha Allen meets Thomas Carrier, a Welshman working for her cousin, and starts wondering about his mysterious past after wolves threaten their homestead. A love story with intrigue stemming from Carrier’s previous life makes this book a fascinating read. The author is a descendent of Martha Allen Carrier, who was accused and executed in the Salem witch trials of 1692.

Thanks to Bonnie Y. for this review!
