This book has taken me far too long to read. It's horribly embarrassing because I adore the Salem Witch Trials. I used to read anything and everything about the SWT. There were books from my library that I'm pretty sure remained in my possession for a full year because I would constantly renew them. My obsession with witches is 1/2 the reason I
was am obsessed with Sabrina the Teenage Witch (the other 1/2 is my love for Clarissa Explains it All). I even did a project on them recently because of my love for that history. So I should have loved this book, right?
The historical aspect of the novel is slightly interesting, but the fiction part of historical fiction is sorely lacking. The Witch of Blackbird Pond and even Gallows Hill, by Lois Duncan, which is only indirectly about about SWT, are far more entertaining reads.
