Publisher Description

In the harsh wilderness of colonial Massachusetts, Martha Allen works as a servant in her cousin's household, taking charge and locking wills with everyone. Thomas Carrier labors for the family and is known both for his immense strength and size and mysterious past. The two begin a courtship that suits their independent natures, with Thomas slowly revealing the story of his part in the English Civil War. But in the rugged new world they inhabit, danger is ever present, whether it be from the assassins sent from London to kill the executioner of Charles I or the wolves-in many forms-who hunt for blood. A love story and a tale of courage, The Traitor's Wife confirms Kathleen Kent's ability to craft powerful stories of family from colonial history.

The Traitor's Wife

I read The Heretic first and loved it.
Somewhat disappointed in this novel. It leaves the reader asking and wanting more answers than the author gives us.Then, in the last few chapters the author switches point of view and tense. Totally hated this! I felt really cheated out of a proper ending. I was rooting for Thomas and Martha all along then in the end, I got a past teems second hand account of things. Boo
