Publisher's Summary

Spring 1645. In a remote village, all is not well. The minister's daughters have taken to their bed, howling and spitting pins. Rumours of bad magic are spreading - fingers are pointing at Nell, the cunning woman's granddaughter. With Matthew Hopkins, the Witch-Finder General on his way, Nell is alone, trapped and in mortal danger...

Summer 1692. Half a century later, the minister's daughter has a confession to make that shows another side to what happened to her sister, Grace, and Nell. But why is her story different - full of gaps and errors? Is her memory failing? Or is she just being clever... very clever?

    Story
    "Same book as Minister's Daughters"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I bought both The Merrybegot and The Minister's Daughter because, after reading the description, I thought one was the sequel to the other. Turns out, they are the same book. The narrator is different, but identical books. Really annoying to pay twice for a book that was mediocre at best.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Shrieking bits, supposedly to sound like an early-adolescent girl giggling or squeling, was assaultively loud and high picted.


    Was The Merrybegot worth the listening time?

    NO
