    I am a high school sophomore who had to do a research project on

    I am a high school sophomore who had to do a research project on the Salem Witch Trials. I have always been interested in thriller 
    books and when I chose this topic, I was immediately excited to be able to read this book. Going into this project, I did not know much
    about this topic but the simple facts that I was told. Once, I started reading this book, it was kind of slow by describing the main people
    involved and the daily life of the Abagail Williams, Betty Parris, and other girls involved. Also, it describes the culture of the Puritans in
    that time which is very odd since they had a very strict rule set. Later on in the book,  I was interested in the way Frances Hill describes
    how the details of this historical event unfolded. Hill tells it like it is a story and you are among the people instead of facts
    upon facts which can not be so interesting. A couple of chapters in the book, like chapter 3 and chapter 10, described how intense
    and how horrifying it was to be involved or to see family and close ones, being killed because they are possessed by the
    devil. I really suggest this book to anyone who wants to know more about the Salem Witch Trials because of the detailed facts that
    Hill gives in this book and it is a book that will make you want to read more.

    An informative account of the Salem witch trials

    Hill's book does a good job of re-telling the story of the historic colonial Salem, Massachusetts witch hunt & trials. At times, the book is boring and a difficult read. Overall, the author did a good job of researching the trials and presenting factual information about a very interesting and bizzare event in Colonial American History.
