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 Wolves of Andover confirms Kathleen Kent's ability to craft powerful stories of family from colonial history.

    " This second effort by Kathleen Kent won't disappoint her previous fans, or any new ones. Her writing is a pleasure to read, and the story is a great page-turner. Looking forward her next endeavor. "

    " Excellent book. It took me longer to get into but once I did, I was thoroughly engaged. There are two plot lines which connect later in the story which complicates it in the beginning but once they meet, you'll be turning the pages faster. I enjoyed this maybe a little more than The Heretic's Daughter just because of the element of surprise in regards to the ending and how the many characters played a part in the story in a way the reader never suspected earlier in the book. Hoping Kathleen Kent writes another novel very soon. "

    " The Wolves of Andover was really not what I was expecting, as usually happens when a friend recommends a book that you immediately check out of the library without reading the jacket. Was it bad? Was it good? Eh, it just wasn't what I'd expected. The paraellel story lines were too divergent for my taste which made it feel like I was reading two different stories, rather than the stories being intertwined. The development of the characters was always stumbling to the point that I felt their was more that could and should have been said about them to make the story more meaningful. Particularly in light of the ending which felt as though the story had just gotten old and it was time to move onto something else. It was a very bumpy story of false starts and incomplete development. And that's disappointing when reading the author's note at the end which leads the reader to develop all sorts of different and, perhaps, more engaging paths to the story of Martha Allen. "

    " Did not enjoy this book as much as I did Kent's other book, "The Heretic's Daughter". "
