By Beth Caruso
A chilling story from Windsor, Connecticut’s earliest town and the home of Alice ‘Alse’ Young, the unfortunate first victim of the Connecticut witch trials.
Alice, a young woman prone to intuitive insights and loyalty to the only family she has ever known, leaves England for the rigid colony of the Massachusetts Bay in 1635 in hopes of reuniting with them again. Finally settling in Windsor, Connecticut, she encounters the rich American wilderness and its inhabitants, her own healing abilities, and the blinding fears of Puritan leaders that collide and set the stage for America’s first witch hanging, her own, on May 26, 1647.
The author uses extensive historical research combined with literary inventions, to bring forth a shocking and passionate narrative theory explaining this tragic and important episode in American history and in the life of Alice (Alse) Young.
Price includes $3 shipping and handling.
