Welcome
My Enemy's Tears:
          The Witch of Northampton
Karen Vorbeck Williams
A story of New World venturers of wilderness and settlement, of witchcraft and war. 

In the 1630s two young girls from different villages sailed from England with their Puritan families, part of the great 17th century migration to the New World. Settled in the Connecticut River Valley, they came face to face with the rigors of life among the Puritans. This story is based on the lives of Mary Bliss Parsons and her enemy Sarah Lyman Bridgeman who suffered from an epic jealousy fueled by superstition that, in time, would lead to an indictment and trial for witchcraft. This fictional account of a true story takes us back to the beginning of a country founded on a dream, where life was perilous, where fear and envy would lead to ruin.
