The Salem witch trials of 1692 continue to horrify those who study American history. From February to September, nearly 200 people were accused of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts. Nineteen people were executed by hanging and one was pressed to death. The accusations of witchcraft and subsequent torture to elicit confessions exacerbated the already difficult lives of the colonists. Even the most physically fit and sound-minded of the Puritans waged a daily battle to cultivate enough food, protect themselves from Indian raids, and thwart challenges from England. This work of fiction will explore colonial incarnations of Jack and Ennis. The two outcasts, one posing as a clergyman, and the other as an accused witch, will strive to escape their plight and survive in the hostile environment of the New World.
