Beth Caruso is the author of “One of Windsor: The Untold Story of America’s First Witch Hanging”
A chilling story from Windsor, Connecticut's earliest town and the home of Alice 'Alse' Young, the unfortunate first victim of the Connecticut Witch Trials.
The Prequel to the Salem Witch Trials and One of the Most Appalling Cover-Ups in American History!
This novel is based on the life of Alice 'Alse' Young and the possible events that led to the first witch hanging in the American colonies. The author uses extensive historical research combined with literary inventions, to bring forth a shocking and passionate narrative theory explaining this tragic and important episode in American history.
Alice, a young woman prone to intuitive insights and loyalty to the only family she has ever known, leaves England for the rigid colony of the Massachusetts Bay in 1635 in hopes of reuniting with them again. Finally settling in Windsor, Connecticut, she encounters the rich American wilderness and its inhabitants, her own healing abilities, and the blinding fears of Puritan leaders which collide and set the stage for America’s first witch hanging, her own, on May 26, 1647.
