WE HAVE AUTHORS:
In everyone's life there is one person, one event, or one experience that affects who they become, the road they take. For hundreds of people in Central New York that person was Miss Parsons; that experience was their days at Cherry Road School. The Brass Bell tells the story of Marion Parsons' life, of the school she started in a hen house in the cherry orchard, of the hundreds, who decades later, still get together to talk about their Miss Parsons and their memorable times at Cherry Road School.

The Witch Trials of Mary Bliss Parsons is the true story of what happened to a Puritan woman who was too beautiful, too rich, and too outspoken for her times. Enmeshed in a web of jealousy and gossip, she struggled to overcome victimization by the harsh judgments of church, state, and gender expectations. How she survived in the fearsome wilderness is a love story told by a descendant
Based on the lives of Mary Bliss Parsons and Sarah Lyman Bridgeman, My Enemy's Tears: The Witch of Northampton, takes us back to life in the Puritan settlements along the Connecticut River, a terrifying wilderness full of warring natives, natural wonders and disasters -- portents of God's anger or a witch's meddling curse. Mary and Sarah grow up amid Puritan superstition and piety, busy with their household chores, one imagining a life different from her mother's and the other eager to marry and bear sons.This fictional account of a true story describes two lives in conflict--one cursed and one blessed--and the transcendent power of forgiveness.
