review 1: I am a die hard historical fiction reader and normally finish books I start. I couldn't finish this novel. The writing is poor and it seemed she wanted to put too many historical characters one book, whether they fit or were needed for the storyline. I would recommend focusing on the important characters from history that you want to include, not all of them, and build a powerful story around the few not many.
review 2: There is so much sensationalism regarding the Salem Witch trials I became intrigued and had to learn a little more about it. This book is insightful because a lot of the witch trials were, in fact, politically motivated. Puritans, Anglican and Quaker religions were all different and garrisons/settlements/cities/towns in what was called "Th
... moree New World" were founded on religion which evolved into power and politics. Very interesting. Tidbit: Witches were not burned at the stake---witches were hung. Additionally, men, particularly ministers, were also accused as being "in charge" of a group of witches---men, women, children--none were spared. less
