The story of the Salem witch trials is a popular one in fiction and Jeanette Baker has constructed her own tale that links the historic events with a modern day foundling. Maggie was discovered, naked and alone, in the Salem cemetery at age two and unofficially adopted by newly widowed Annie. Just before her death, Annie reveals the truth and urges Maggie to return to Salem. Settling in her old home, Maggie begins to experience visions of 17th century Salem and the life of Abagail March and her ...more

One October day in Salem, Massachusetts, a widow named Annie McBride finds a naked toddler in the cemetery. With no sign of anyone about, and intuiting that she is needed, Annie takes the child home.

The child whom she names Margaret (Maggie) becomes a comfort to Annie, but since she didn't turn the child in to the officials, the two of them spend the next several years moving from place to place.

When Annie dies several years later, Maggie is an adult living in LA and working as a psychic to assi

Really enjoyed this one, as it was a little different than my usual read!

We first meet Annie, a recent widow struggling to get through each day without her husband. Drawn to the cemetery, she discovers a naked, abandoned child sitting on a bench near Annie's husband's grave. Taking her home, Annie determines that it's her mission to raise the girl as her own, and they leave town soon afterwards. Of course it's more complicated than that, but Baker sets up Maggie's background nicely!

The only people that know what she truly is are her husband and his best friend. Abigail tries to convince him that the Craft is not evil, merely being possessed of special lost knowledge that some have been fortunate enough to retain, but even her husband and friend's protection can't save her, or her two children (who have inherit ...more
