I purchased this only because it was recommended but LOVED IT
I've studied the trials but had to limit it because it was so troubling - not so with this book. Well written, engaging and hopeful! Kudos to the narrator - Tavia Gilbert's character voices are among the best I've heard.

We are loved in spite of our faults
A gentle, moving story of a young woman who loses her life during the Salem witch trials of 1692. Her diary survives and is transcribed by another young woman, who assists a very old woman -- a descendant of the original victim. The caring relationship that develops between the student who undertakes the transcription and the old woman who owns the diary is very well envisioned. The narrator of the audiobook made listening to the story very pleasant.
