In This Strange Soil

by Jillian Hensley

“Jillian Hensley’s account of the 1704 raid on Deerfield, which is central to her story, feels authentic and fully imagined. I have read other accounts of this famous event, but for me this is the most engaging and original.”
—Frances Kidder

“Hensley’s Jesuit narrator records his experiences, thoughts and observations in a voice so consistent and believable that one might forget he’s fictional. His perspective opens history and, in particular, humanizes missionary activity in the New World—both the good and the bad of it. Respectfully researched and thoughtfully composed In This Strange Soil is a work of grace and integrity.”
— Libby Maxey, Editor, Thornapple Press
