really liked it
bookshelves: books-to-buy, historical-fiction, 4-stars

For such a fast-paced story, it was pretty intense. It doesn’t take long for Abigail to be accused of witchcraft, and once that happens, things move along at a clipped pace, holding one’s attention until the very end. The ending itself is pretty abrupt, but the Author’s Note fills in what holes are left, so it is definitely advisable to read that. The writing itself is pleasing, the dialogue authentic, though I kept thinking that it really should have been told in Abigail’s voice. I think she would have made a great narrator. Other than that little complaint, this is a very quick, fun read that I’d recommend to any historical fiction fan, guy or girl.
