Salem, Massachusetts, Winter 1692: In the parsonage of Reverend Samuel Parris, two young girls are seated by the fire and play at fortune telling as snow falls softly outside. What starts as a game sends one of the girls into a hysterical trance, and a small town begins its descent into madness. Accusations of witchcraft would destroy lives and old scores would be settled. Over 150 people would be arrested and imprisoned, with even more accused of consorting with the devil. In this book, the author brings her historical and political understanding together with her skills as a novelist to produce a picture of the Salem witch trials both realistic and emotional.

I found this book to be quite good. Finding good historical fiction novels that keep you interested enough to read some of the book and keep you going I find is quite a difficult task.

That being said, this hit the spot for the Salem Witch Trials category. Managed to read the book in eight days! As for most books, it does take a couple chapters or so to get into it, but once you're into it - hang on because you're instantly transported back to Salem!

DIdn't finish this. It was choppy at the start and despite my interest in this topic, I couldn't bring myself to continue further with this book.
