Lois the Witch, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Recently orphaned, Lois is forced to leave the English parsonage that had been her home, and sail to America.

A Godfearing and honest girl, she has little to fear in this new life.

Yet as she joins her distant family, she finds jealousy and dissention are rife, and her cousins quick to point the finger at the 'impostor'.

With the whole of Salem gripped by a fear of the supernatural, it seems her home is where she is in most danger.

Lonely and afraid, the words of an old curse return to haunt her.

Review by

A solid, chilling story recounting one young girl's experience of being swallowed up in the suspicion and hysteria of the Salem Witch trials. Written by a Unitarian, wife of a Unitarian minister, which probably doesn't mean a lot to most people but I find interesting :-)
