This book is set during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and features Susanna English, who yearns to be apart of the girls' circle that meets at the Reverend's house. The girls shun her though and when Susanna figures out that they are naming people that the leader of the circle, Ann, doesn't like as witches, they threaten her with naming her parents as witches. What will Susanna do? This book is great for a history class to read in conjunction with Language Arts classes that are reading The Crucible. The kids could do research on some of the key historical figures and their role of what actually happened in the Salem Witch Trials. Although this story is Historical Fiction, some of the key characters are true to history. ( )

This book was truly a treat when I started it, I thought it would be like any other Salem book, starts out all nice explaining what happened then explaining what happened in result of it all. I was not excpeting an entire story out of the events, even though it was fiction I still felt like that was what could of happened and we just don't know about it. This book is filled with mysteries and wickness, a great mixture together. Rinaldi did a really amazing job writing this book. ( )

In 1692 in Salem Massachusetts, 22 people were executed for being witches. One by one, these people have been accused by a group of teenage girls, and the townspeople have listened to them. In turn, the accused witches are hanged, stoned, or drowned, and the town keeps turning back to these girls to identify more witches. This book tells the story of the girls who started the Salem witch trials. ( )

The first Rinaldi book I ever read, picked up while on a day trip to Salem. She did such a good job with the story, making her version of the Witch hysteria entirely plausible, that I become hooked on her as an author. ( )

Women who read books, who wrote their thoughts on parchment, did not honor their fathers or ministers. They were considered dangerous. It went back to the time of Anne Hutchinson.

Father had told us about Anne. She had been a self-proclaimed minister who had put forth her own independent religious beliefs and argued against ordained ministers.

Massachusetts Bay Colony had never quite recovered from the heresies of Anne Hutchinson. In 1637, its leaders had tried her for thinking on her own and banished her and her followers to Rhode Island.

I would lie in bed plunged into depths of fear that I had heretofore never known existed. I would think of my family and yearn for those wonderful days of my past when we were together. I asked myself what had happened to us all and how could such things happen to good people. And why did I never realize how precious those days were that went before. I knew my life would never be the same, and I wondered if we would ever be happy again, any of us in Salem.
