The Lovereading4Kids comment

A cleverly plotted, scary thriller, Heretic interweaves a strong historical setting with a whimsical ‘faery’ story. Set in England during the reign of Henry V111 Heretic is a story of persecution and survival across different centuries. Elizabeth and her family are in hiding with a Catholic priest trying to stay safe from the persecutors who have outlawed their religion. Deep in the woods, she finds an unusual green-tinged creature who turns out to be Isabella, a girl of her own age who has been kept safe from persecution as a witch 300 years earlier, by the ‘faery’ folk. As the net tightens on Elizabeth’s family, the girls work together to keep the persecutors at bay. (12+)

Synopsis

Heretic by Sarah Singleton

When Elizabeth finds a green-tinged creature she's amazed to discover that it's actually a girl of her own age. Isabella has spent the last 300 years in the faery world, hiding from persecutors who accused her of being the daughter of a witch. Elizabeth has her own persecutors to face. A priest is hiding in her home, and the net is closing in.
