The Witch's Trinity

by Erika Mailman

The Witch's Trinity Synopsis

Witch. Some words can kill . . . To Gude's son and grandchildren it could mean the loss of a loved one. To Gude it could mean torture and death at the stake. And to Gude's daughter-in-law it could mean one less mouth to feed. In a time when famine is rife and panic spreading, people resort to desperate measures in order to survive. So when Gude is accused of witchcraft by her daughter-in-law she must find the strength to clear her name and save her life . . .

The Witch's Trinity Press Reviews

Beautifully executed * Historical Novels Review * A centuries-old tale with modern resonance * Guardian * This terrifying, gripping novel shows how desperation spawns wickedness. * The Times * Not for the faint-hearted, Mailman ratchets up the tension and the images of torture as Gude fights to escape an horrendous fate. Gripping. * Marie Claire * Mailman generates a real sense of dread for Gude's fate . . . One of Mailman's ancestors was accused of witchcraft in 1600s New England, which adds piquancy to the plot . . . Mailman creditably forces the pace, giving the snouty friar pride of place in an unusual denouement. * Financial Times * This is a stunning debut... Viscerally scary, gripping and written in beautiful, sparse prose, it's a seriously good read * Sainsbury's magazine * Gripping debut * Elle * A gripping, well-told story of faith and truth. * Khaled Hosseini, bestselling author of The Kite Runner *
