It is the Year of Our Lord 1685 and fourteen-year-old Maude Prichard finds herself at a crossroads in her life. A chance meeting with a strange woman who never ages set the young Puritan maid on a path littered with fear, superstition, and witchcraft. A boy whose love is forbidden and an old man drenched in darkness and depravity will catapult Maude out of her well-ordered world and into a life fraught with danger. Travel with her as she journeys from the Massachusetts Bay Colony to the wilds of Maine, where she will finally take her place with The Witches of Storm Island.
The Witches of Storm Island series serves as a prequel to the contemporary Gothic novel series The Kate Pomeroy Mysteries, the first of which is entitled Storm Island.
What do you think of the cover? I think it's wonderfully striking and spooky. I love the fact that this story is set in Massachusetts, which is where I've lived since 1998. In fact, my hubby is from Danvers, which is right next to Salem, the site of the infamous Witch Trials. Of course, me being a fan of all things spooky, we've visited Salem on numerous occasions to take in the sites and the history. Wandering around Salem during the month of Halloween is quite a scene!
