it was amazing
Read in May, 2009

I truly enjoyed this book. Set in 1690's America or the New World particularly Massachussetts. Dealing with the Puritans and all the hullaballoo (sp) with witches and witch craft. This is concerning the time period of the Salem Witch Trials and all the false accusations and unnecessary deaths that occurred in those time. Told through the experiences of a daughter of a supposed witch. I learned so much as the fictional story is based on a lot of fact and also has many references with actual victims of the times. What a fearful time it must of been to even have a bad thought or an eye twitch around anyone in public. What an eye opener I really had no idea!

Majenta "Hullaballoo" actually looks more right to me but apparently it's "hullabaloo."

Robin Thanks. I should have taken the time back then to search it out myself. Obviously I was never an English, Grammar or Literature A- student. I just like to read.
