This book opened my eyes to a new way of interpreting what the Salem witchcraft trials were about. Was it truly as is traditionally recorded an outbreak of witchcraft or was it something else? This is a great book. It read like a narrative. Some may think that this book drags but it is still a very interesting read.

Sarah Risner Gilpin I love this book. I am reading it for school. Do you happen to know what the thesis sentence is in the book?
