I really liked this book. I can't wait to read the next one! I could not put it down. I'd say that some of it is a little hard to read with some of the old-fashioned wording and such.

"I am Mary. I am a witch." Thus begins the journal of Mary Newbury, writing in the spring of 1659 as she watches her beloved grandmother being tortured and hung as a witch in her English village. Before the crowd can turn on Mary, she is whisked away and placed on a ship headed for America. The journal format Celia Rees uses is so convincing that it's easy to believe Mary actually existed,
