This is one of my favourite reads this season and it's perfect for Halloween as it follows Sewall and his family, as well as the community, before, during and after the famous Salem witch trials. This is fiction so it isn't about the specific facts and events of the trials but it is inspired by them and features some of the same individuals. It's so so much more enjoyable than I thought it could be! I didn't want stop reading, even though some parts are a little frustrating and others upsetting, which I think is the sign of a great book! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
