Overview

A Break with Charity: A Story about the Salem Witch Trials by Ann Rinaldi

"Mistress Bishop," said Magistrate Corwin, "you are accused of being a witch. How say you to this charge?"

"I do not know what a witch is."

Immediately the girls in the circle, who were sitting up front in the room, went into fits. They threw themselves on the floor and shrieked and wailed.... They twitched their bodies and howled like forest creatures at the time of the full moon. The howling was a terrible thing to hear. It cut through one's bones with its primitive sound.

If you love historical fiction about the Salem Witch Trials, then this is the book for you. Although it is written for children 10 to 14 years of age (yes, I am almost 30), I still found it very interesting. I even learned some things. The author did a great job bringing the characters to life. I also enjoyed the Authors note at the end of the novel (which I dont usually read). She included some great facts and explained which characters were real and who was fictional. I read the book in 1 day!! I plan on reading more by this author!! 2 thumbs up!!

Awesome book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love all of Ann Rinaldi's books but this one was the best. It is very historically accurate and kept me interested the whole time. I read it in a day it was so good! I will definitely keep reading historical fiction books by Ann Rinaldi and would recommend them to anyone even if they don't like historical fiction.

I loved this book! Ann Rinaldi has created a masterpiece! This book is not only very informational, but also has a great deal of romance and suspense. If you can't handle slight tragedy/violence, then this isn't a great choice for you. I, however, like horror stories as well as drama, comedy, etc... so the touch of scariness was great. If you are anything like I am and like most genres of book, this will be great for you. And I can guarentee a five star rating for everyone.

I think this book is amazing. It might be a bit frightening in some parts but you get over it pretty quickly. I had to read this for school (well I did not have to but I chose to) I think this book is for fifth or sixth graders. I have not finished it yet but I probably will today because it is so good!!!!
