After just reading The Heretic's Daughter which also involved the Salem Witch Trials, I would love to read about Mercy's story and see how it affects the contemporary characters in The Shape of Mercy.

Hello, I have read that this delightful book is a bit of mystery, history and a love story. It would be intriguing reading the diary along with the two ladies and how it transforms their lives. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks, Cindi

I forgot to say that I've never read anything by this author and I always like to find new authors to read. I do like anything historical so this book should be good!

The first time I heard/read about the Salem Witch Trials I was about 12 or 13 and was horrified! Honestly, I wonder if I handle reading about it now!

Anyway, strange as it may seem, I haven't read any of Susan M's books. Have heard about them a lot and what's very interesting is that she lives about three miles from me! (Mt. Lake, Minnesota). It's a small world! I've never met her before but have talked to her on the phone several time...before she became a published author I wanted to hire her as a music teacher for my students but she told me that her "slate is full"...small world indeed!

I clicked on your site from A Peek at my Bookshelf. I love your book reviews and your blog is very "cozy." I commented on this before but that book review you gave on "The Lady of the Milkweed Manor" was FABULOUS! It really is one of the best books I ever read!

Keep up the good work!!

Oh, I'd like to be entered into the contest for this book...

I've been seeing this book around the blogging world and am just dying to read it! First I think the Salem witch trials are so interesting. Also I recently read In The Shadow of Lions, which was about an editor writing down the story a Scribe shows her and I loved that aspect of it...so when I saw that The Shape of Mercy was about transcribing a diary I got really excited. And I heard that Susan is a great storyteller.

Like I said...I'm dying to read this book!!

Thanks!

I haven't heard anything about this book except that you are giving away a copy. I want it. I love all books!

Carole said...

I read an interview with Susan on another blog and was fascinated by this book. I've toured Salem and was frankly glad to leave that town. Susan's treatment of this time in our history will provide very interesting reading. Thank you for this giveaway.
