Loved it! The story of the Salem witch was interesting, but the side stories brought it l all together.

If you want a story about a girl during the Salem witch hunt this isn't it. The book is about two women in modern times that each come from a privileged family and the struggles they've created in their lives. Very disappointing.
The narrator could have been good but she E NUN CI ATES TOOOOOOO MUCH. I found myself so annoyed by her ridiculous narration that I had to constantly rewind to hear the story. I won't buy another book narrated by her.
