One of our final two Dear Americas, this is the compelling diary of a young girl who finds herself caught up in the turmoil and drama of the Salem Witch Trials.
Deliverance Trembley lives in Salem Village, where she must take care of her sickly sister, Mem, and where she does her daily chores in fear of her cruel uncle's angry temper. But when four young girls from the village accuse some of the local women of being witches, Deliverance finds herself caught up in the ensuing drama of the trials. And life in Salem is never the same.---from the publisher
