My Enemy's Tears: The Witch of Northampton

Based on the lives of Mary Bliss Parsons and Sarah Lyman Bridgeman, My Enemy’s Tears: The Witch of Northampton, takes us back to life in the Puritan settlements along the Connecticut River, a terrifying wilderness full of warring natives, natural wonders and disasters — portents of God’s anger or a witch’s meddling curse.

Mary and Sarah grow up amid Puritan superstition and piety, busy with their household chores, one imagining a life different from her mother’s and the other eager to marry and bear sons. This fictional account of a true story describes two lives in conflict — one cursed and one blessed — and the transcendent power of forgiveness.
