A new poetry collection by Juliette van der Molen!
1692 Salem, Massachusetts - Based on the life of Dorothy Good, the youngest person accused of and imprisoned for witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials, Confess tells the story of the trauma surrounding this nearly forgotten child from one of the darkest chapters in early American history. A colony is plunged into turmoil filled with misunderstandings, fear, intolerance, religious fervor, and an egregious abuse of power. Over the course of the year, more than two hundred people are accused of witchcraft and thirty are found guilty. Nineteen will be sentenced to death.
Four-year-old Dorothy and her mother, Sarah Good, are arrested for witchcraft.
Dorothy will confess.
Sarah will hang.
This is Dorothy's story...
