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.
