The Traitor's Wife: A Novel by Kathleen Kent

This is a prequel to The Heretic's Daughter, which I read in 2010 and reviewed here.  Set in 1673 New England, Martha Allen works as a servant in her cousin's household.   Thomas Carrier is a laborer for the family with a mysterious past.  I enjoyed this book, but I thought The Heretic's Daughter was even better.  I might have liked it more if I had read it first, although it was interesting to learn the history of Martha and Thomas.  I rated it 4 out of 5.
