Great Book

by twoairedales on Mar 25, 2010

This book was definitely full of food for thought. I can't imagine living in a time such as this and being persecuted for my Christian beliefs. Pictures were vividly painted in my mind of the "witches" living conditions and the life they were subjected to. The author's portrayal of her subjects also made me feel like I "got to know" the characters. Although I am sure that this is simply the true tip of the iceburg, it was a very interesting read. Difficult to put down. I would like to read more from this author and more on this subject


Spite and superstition in Salem

by donna on Jun 30, 2008

The author has drawn upon the history of her ancestors to weave a story of passion,love, betrayal and superstition. Martha Carrier is different , speaks her mind and has possession of a property that another relative believes should be his. Of course, this makes her a target and her denunciation as a witch is inevitable. The story is recounted from the view point of her young daughter with whom she is at odds. Vivid descriptions of the times and good characterizations highlight this story. I enjoyed it.
