I'd been meaning to read this for a long time; finally got around to it and was not disappointed. Nice mix of fact and fiction (mostly fact), which the author addresses in a note at the end. This book brought the Salem Witch Hysteria alive and put it into perspective. Historical fiction is great! Recommended!

Amazon:
Susanna desperately wants to join the circle of girls who meet every week at the parsonage. What she doesn't realize is that the girls are about to set off a torrent of false accusations leading to the imprisonment and execution of countless innocent people. Susanna faces a painful choice. Should she keep quiet and let the witch-hunt panic continue, or should she "break charity" with the group--and risk having her own family members named as witches?
