22454 I will have to look this challenge up myself. i am always reading books on the Witch Trials.
I have read The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe Witch Child (Witch Child, #1) by Celia Rees The Minister's Daughter by Julie Hearnthe Ministers Daughter(which in the uk is called The Merybegott) this is set around the witch trials but is a Young Adult read with part fantasy.

I have recently read The Witch's Trinity A Novel by Erika Mailman which was agreat read about the witch trials not set in salem but in germany. Although the story was very similar. really enjoyed this one..It is the best one I have read that touches on how desperate people of the times were that they accused their neighbours and family of witchcraft, not too dark a book but really hits home the points. I found it a more enjoyable read than the Heretics daughter which at times was too heavy.

Good luck with the challenge ;)

22454 I have just finished reading The Witch's Trinity A Novel by Erika Mailman and I really enjoyed it. If you enjoy reading fiction set at the times of the witch trials you will probably enjoy this too. Set in Germany amongst the snow, rather than Salem..

22454 I am reading The Witch's Trinity by Erika Mailman. Only just started but it seems like it will be a good read. I always enjoy reading books set around the time of the Witch Trials..
