This week's book was an Amazon recommendation and it was only $4. It takes place in Germany in medieval times. It follows an infamous executioner family, specifically one man and his daughter. A series of events lead the superstitious townspeople to suspect one of their own of witchcraft. It's up to the hangman and his daughter, with the help of a couple of friends, to prove that the accused isn't guilty. Can they save her in time?
I liked this book. It takes place near where I currently live in Germany, so it was cool to read about what this area might have been like in the 1600s. I enjoy reading about times past and since this book is based on an actual family, the facts are more interesting. Some of the torture parts are a bit tough to read and I figured out the mystery long before then end, but it was an enjoyable book nonetheless. The author did a good job of making the characters likable and kept with the details from the time period.
