Conceived on a May Morning, Nell is claimed by the piskies and faeries as a merrybegot, one of their own. She is a wild child: herb gatherer and healer, spell-weaver and midwife . . . and, some say, a witch.
Grace is everything Nell is not. She is the Puritan minister’s daughter: beautiful and refined, innocent and sweet-natured . . . to those who think they know her. But she is hiding a secret–a secret that will bring everlasting shame to her family should it ever come to light.
A merrybegot and a minister’s daughter–two girls who could not have less in common. Yet their fates collide when Grace and her younger sister, Patience, are suddenly spitting pins, struck with fits, and speaking in fevered tongues. The minister is convinced his daughters are the victims of witchcraft. And all signs point to Nell as the source of the trouble. . . .
Set during the tumultuous era of the English Civil War, The Minister’s Daughter is a spellbinding page-turner–stunning historical fiction that captures the superstition, passion, madness, and magic of a vanished age.

    " Eh, not as good as I thought it would be. But I'm not really into fairie lore. If you are into fairie lore and can imagine it mixed with Puritanical culture, then give this one a whirl. "

    " I wasn't sure about this book when I started it, but it ended up being a rather good story. I liked how it showed that what our church farthers say may not be the perfect truth and that people will believe whatever they have been told at times. "
