The Witch's Trinity by Erika Mailman

A gripping tale of 16th-century witchcraft

When a Dominican friar arrives in a village in 16th-century Germany, convinced that witchcraft is responsible for the famine, he condemns an elderly woman to be burnt at the stake. Her friend, Gude, knows it's only a matter of time before the finger of blame is pointed at her. Not for the faint-hearted, Mailman ratchets up the tension and the images of torture as Gude fights to escape an horrendous fate. Gripping.
