Publisher's Summary

Jennet Preston was an ordinary woman with an extraordinary death. Pursued and vilified by her young lord and master, Thomas Lister, she was accused and tried - twice - for murder by witchcraft in 1612. This is the story of her second trial.

A friend of the Device family of Malkin Tower, Jennet Preston’s story starts and ends in Yorkshire, yet is inextricably entwined with the most famous witch trial in British history - that of the Pendle Witches.

Murder by Witchcraft is the first book in an exciting new series of five historical fiction short stories exploring the true life events that inspired Karen Perkins’ forthcoming supernatural novel: A Question of Witchcraft.

A bit of history

Enjoyed this sad story. Felt like I was there. Religion is so corrupt. Church evil is a monster.

Sounds like it was recorded in a bathroom

Gutted!! I was looking forward to listening to this and think the story may even be good, but the recording is awful and sounds so bad I can't concentrate or enjoy the book....real shame.

Karen Perkins Is Bewitching

A beautiful rendering of a tragic story. Karen's storytelling is emotive and powerfull as she pulls you into Jennet's world artfully woven with the rich Yorkshire language of the time. Just enough to draw you into time and place, without stifling the story. The injustice crawls under your skin as you ride on the waves of Jennet's frustration, anger, sadness and fear. The highs and lows through her ordeal is palpable through Karen's reading. What an introduction to Audible.
