The Wolves of Andover AudioBook Review & Giveaway! 1/19

THE WOLVES OF ANDOVER 
by Kathleen Kent
Kent doesn't disappoint in this prequel to The Heretic's Daughter, taking readers back to Massachusetts before the Salem witch trials as strong-willed 23-year-old Martha Allen falls in love with strong-armed hired hand Thomas Carrier. Rumor has it that Thomas, while living in England under another name, played a role in the execution of King Charles I. Now both he and Martha work for Martha's cousin on her farm and are brought together with a little help from the wolves stalking the farm. But after Thomas saves Martha from a wolf attack, he discovers wild animals are not the only dangers lurking in the Massachusetts woods: assassins have arrived from London to capture Charles I's executioner, said to be living outside Boston under an assumed name. Kent weaves in references to her first novel while creating an immersive stand-alone where Old World corruption clashes with New World opportunity; London bustles as civilization is carved out of the Massachusetts wilderness; and colonial self-reliance contrasts with dealing for favors in Restoration England. Kent brings colonial America to life by poking into its dark corners and finding its emotional and personal underpinnings.
 
About the Author~
Kathleen Kent is a tenth-generation descendant of Martha Carrier. She is also a masterful storyteller, and in her first novel, THE HERETICT'S DAUGHTER, she painted a haunting portrait, not just of Puritan New England but also of one family’s deep and abiding love in the face of fear and persecution. Kathleen Kent lives in Dallas.

  I loved this audiobook as Kathleen really tells a great story and doesn't hold back at all.She makes you feel like you are there as her voice makes it seem like that. It provides a detailed, rich description of daily life in 17th century Massachusetts. Smallpox travels through the town and I’m fascinated by infectious disease and how it’s contained. Kent takes the reader to England for its civil war.You will read about the Wolves too~When a pair of roaming wolves threatens her cousin’s home, Martha and Thomas begin to forge a bond.

  26. Tick Tock looks good to me. I've enjoyed every James Patterson book I've ever read. He can write a story with believable characters.
