The Witches: Salem, 1692

Comprehensive. Readers who enjoy history presented after deep and rich research, and delivered in readable prose, are those most likely to enjoy Stacy Schiff’s book titled, The Witches. Schiff examines all the records she could get her hands on to relate to contemporary readers what really happened in Salem in 1692. Many of us think we know about the Salem witch trials, but I doubt few of us bring the perspective that Schiff offers. Any reader interested in this time period and this event should enjoy this book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Witches from amazon.com.
