Waterstones Says

A visceral and gripping debut novel from poet A. K. Blakemore, The Manningtree Witches takes the reader into the midst of the Puritan regime and harrowing witch trials of seventeenth-century England.

Waterstones Fiction Book of the Month for November 2021

Shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award 2021

Winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize 2021

England, 1643. Puritanical fervour has gripped the nation.

In Manningtree, depleted of men since the Civil War began, the women are left to their own devices and Rebecca West chafes against the drudgery of her days. But when Matthew Hopkins arrives, asking bladed questions and casting damning accusations, mistrust and unease seep into the lives of the women.

Caught between betrayal and persecution, what must Rebecca West do to survive?
