Something terrible happened in Salem in 1692 . . . but it isn't what you think!
THE AFFLICTED GIRLS A Novel of Salem by author-researcher
Suzy Witten presents a startling new theory of the Salem Village witch-hunts which is certain to put this 300 year old unsettled mystery to rest . . . by expertly guiding readers through The
Historical Record to revelation. Part parable, part star-crossed romance, and part supernatural venture, this is an intuitive human history--and inhuman--spun with a modern twist.
Centering her story on Salem Village and its inhabitants,
exploring their dark household corners as if she is solving a crime, the author adeptly details how the disintegration occurred while spinning familiar facts in new directions, with the mysterious "afflictions" finally explained. A controversial debut by a new Historical storyteller. (For ages 17 and older)
