    The story, WitchesÕ Children, began on January 16 1692 in Salem village. The main characters name was Mary Warren whose parents had died from the small pox therefore forcing her to become bound to John and Elizabeth Procter. One day Mary was asked to take a sack of potatoes to reverend ParishÕs house. When she arrived Betty Parish, Abby Jacobs, and their servant Tituba warmly invited her to sit by the fire. Abby explained that Tituba was reading the palms of their hands and that it was BettyÕs turn. Tituba spoke of a young handsome man in her future, and at this Abby got very jealous. She said that Tituba was lying and couldnÕt read their palms at all. She then demanded that Tituba read her hand. All Tituba said was ÒYou be a childe and I shall only serve my master and people who treat me with respect although a servant I be.Ó And with that she left the room. Abby who was very angry now attempted to close her eyes and see what Tituba saw. She succeeded. She said she saw things in her mind as if they were really there, she said things reached out and tried to touch her things like a black cat, a yellow bird, and even Satan himself after that her head flew back and she let out a blood-curdling scream. Soon every girl in the room was screaming and that was the beginning of the Salem witch trials. Throughout their every day lives the girls would go into takings where their bodies would crumble to the floor as screams shrieks and moans filled the air. Their bodies twisted and turned as if writhing in pain, some clenched there fists so tightly that there nails made their palms bleed. They explained to their families that they could see the shapes of women in the town hovering above them, biting, scratching and even chocking them. To this day Mary wondered weather she really saw things or if she saw them because she thought she did. The women that they saw were put in prison and would soon have to go to court. I donÕt think that the magistrates, that were asking the so called witches questions in court, were treating them fairly because when they asked them questions such as Òhave you signed the devils book,Ó they would reply no, which was the truth, but the magistrates would only accuse them of lying and persisted with their questions until the women finally answered ÒYES!Ó To every question. So even the truth was denied. They would only accept what Salem wanted to hear. Mary was fed up and finished with their stupid seizures and decided to separate from the group. She told her master it was but there own fault they acted so, and if she separated from the mayhem it would end. Soon after, the girls found out that she spoke against them and accused her of being a witch. Are these truly the possessed girls of Salem, godÕs helpers to search out evil? Or are they the witchesÕ children scent to condemn the innocent. I liked this book a lot, although when Mary spent 10 days in prison it really felt like 10 days. Also it sort of confused me, but I sort of think that was the point. In rating this book from one to five I would give it a 3 because even though I liked it, it confused me and even sort of disturbed me.
