4⭐ I devoured this book in less than a day. Lauren is a poor little rich girl who takes a job transcribing a 300 year old diary of Mercy, who was condemned as a witch in Salem. But it's also a story of lost love and sacrifice, and of tearing down preconceived notions. Good book!

This book was deep, compelling, and rich in history. It has stayed with me long after finishing it. This one will make you think. #Christianfiction #inspirational

I finished another one. The setting for part is the Salem witch trials. The other part is contemporary.

Wonderful story of a privileged college girl that happens upon a job transcribing the 300 year old diary of a young girl involved in the Salem Witch Trials. Well written and powerful, Lauren learns a great deal about herself, as she learns about life in the late 1600s and the present day life of the diary's owner. http://www.history.com/topics/salem-witch-trials #UCFLAE3414sp17

juliek1 I'll definitely check this out. The Salem witch trials have fascinated me ever since I first learned about them as a child. 2y
