Revenge and Retribution
Life in the Colony of Maryland is no sinecure – as Alex and Matthew Graham well know. But nothing in their previous life has prepared them for the mayhem that is about to be unleashed upon them.
Being labelled a witch is not a good thing in 1684, so it is no wonder Alex Graham is aghast at having such insinuations thrown at her. Even worse, it’s Matthew’s brother-in-law, Simon Melville, who points finger at her.
Not that the ensuing hearing is her main concern, because nowadays Alex’s entire life is tainted by the fear of what Philip Burley will do to them once he gets hold of them – there is no longer any ‘if’ about it. On a sunny May afternoon, it seems Philip Burley will at last revenge himself on Matthew for every single perceived wrong. Over the course of twenty-four hours, Alex’s life – and that of her family’s – is permanently changed.
As if all this wasn’t enough, Alex also has to cope with the loss of one of her sons. Forcibly adopted by the former Susquehannock, Samuel is dragged from Alex’s arms to begin a new life in the wilderness.
How is Alex to survive all this? And will she be able to put her damaged family back together?

PRAISE FOR REVENGE AND RETRIBUTION
A dark and addictive tale, Revenge and Retribution proved impossible to put down. Highly recommended to both fans of the series and those discovering it for the first time.
- Erin Davies at Flashlight Commentary
Anna writes deep, emotional historical novels, adding the fantastical element of the time slip and a “what if?” scenario, and creates for us a world in which to be lost in on rainy days and weekend reading fests.
- Erin Al-Mehairi at Oh, for the HOOK of a BOOK!
With each book she writes about the Grahams, I have been blown away by her characters’ lives and their family unit. One can tell how much heart and soul puts into her characters and the situation they are going through no matter what.
- Stephanie Moore Hopkins at Layered Pages
I loved the element of historical detail in this book. I loved learning a little bit of new information about my state! Overall, this was a very good story that I ate up!
- Meg at A Bookish Affair
This is a book and a series that will take both your heart and your head to places both light and dark, disheartening and uplifting, fantastic and frightening, but all utterly unforgettable!
