CONVERSION is a chilling mystery inspired by true events about a bizarre epidemic that breaks out — all too similar to one that happened three centuries ago.
From B&N Editors
It begins with one girl’s classroom seizure; before long, a mysterious illness with bizarre symptoms is spreading throughout St. Joan’s Academy. As physicians and news reporters descend on the elite Massachusetts, searching for answers and exclusives, one young woman seems to have found an answer in an unlikely place. As senior Colleen Rowley researches her extra-credit paper on the relationship of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and the 17th century Salem witch trials, she begins to find links between the latter and the possessions that are now happening before her eyes.
