Waiting on Wednesday (22) — Father of Lies by Ann Turner

Posted by on January 19, 2011
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)
Father of Lies

Truth or Lies?


Lidda knew, with a clarity that was like a candle in a dark room, that all had changed; something was loosed in the village—Devil or not—and they would pay for it, every last man, woman, and child. Fourteen-year-old Lidda has always known she was different. She longs to escape Salem Village and its stifling rules—to be free to dance, to sing, to live as she chooses. But when a plague of accusations descends on the village and witch fever erupts, L idda begins to realize that she feels and sees things that others can’t, or won’t. But how will she expose the truth without being hung as a witch herself?


Gripping and emotional, Ann Turner’s retelling of the Salem witch trials captures one girl’s brave soul-searching amidst a backdrop of fear and blame.

Ever since I read Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, I’ve had a thing for historical fiction. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!!

Father of Lies is expected to be released on February 8th 2011 by HarperTeen.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Just my opinion, but I much prefer the cover on my ARC which I totally LOVE. This one is just blegh to me, imho. Father of Lies is really good though and my review of it posts next week, though I read the book and typed the review a few months back. Great pick! :D
