Readers say: Suffer a Witch is "awesome" and "addicting."
They call her "Em." Em is for Martha. Em for "Emogene Peres," the name she received in Boston less than a day after she'd been hanged in Salem Village in September 1692. In the hours after death, Em and most of those hanged as Salem Witches were transformed into immortal witches. Three hundred and twenty-two years later, they live, work, and love in modern day Boston, where Em runs a spiritual store called the Mystic Divine, just off the Boston Commons.
On the anniversary of the first hanging, June 10, 2014, Em learns that a young man and a team of ghost hunters have dedicated themselves to finding the crevice where the Salem Twenty's bodies were stuffed after hanging. The problem is that Em and the rest of the Salem Twenty are making full use of their skeletons. What starts with a young man with big ideas brings the Salem Witches face to face with their toughest challenge -- their own demons.
In Suffer a Witch, you will meet the Salem Witches as you've never seen them. Through their eyes, you get a sense of what happened all those years ago. Their stories will move you to tears and make you laugh out loud. Join them as they face a battle they have prepared for their entire lives.
Suffer a Witch is filled with all the things you've come to expect from Claudia Hall Christian — great characters, heart pounding love, and more than a dash of fast-paced adventure.

Not just a fantastic story about a crucial moment in our young country's history, but a labor of love! This journey will take you on an amazing twists and turns of Salem Witch Trials.
Love this author and her stories. A lot of research into actual facts for this fictional tale.
I was given this book in exchange for the read and a fair, unbiased review-here it is. This is not your average Salem Witch Trial story. While it does recount the atrocities committed to those who were witches, they have been deemed immortal and the story takes place with the immortal witches living among us in modern times. I don't like giving up spoilers, but there are so many great things to say about this book. "Em" the main character is a hoot. You will laugh at times, certainly be intrigued, it might even move you to tears; it's a book that can thoroughly be enjoyed by anyone. Again, it's not your typical Salem Witch Trials story, there is so much depth to this book, bringing the characters into today's day and age. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal read that provokes so many emotions, yet thoroughly enjoyable. I will probably end up reading this again, I enjoyed it so much. Bravo Claudia Hall Christian for a very refreshing take on the Salem Witch Trials and how you intermingled it with today's mindset. Awesome!!
This book it amazing! Full of love, magic, loyalty, and extremely well written characters. CHC has taken history and brought it to life. This is a must read book that puts a new spin on the horrible history of the Salem Witch Trials.
I loved this book. Of course, anything Claudia Hall Christian writes is excellent. Her characters were alive and you really felt for them. The story was exciting, couldn't stop reading! I love all of her series, and hope there are more books on this group of characters.
