This book was arguably the best I've listened to on Audible. It delved deeply into the Salem Witch Trials in a highly personal way - I learned a lot about mass culture hysteria and the consequences of it to a town. In addition to that, a story of the researcher unfolds that relates to the life of the main character in Salem, along with the elderly woman who hired her to translate the woman's diary. It all was fascinating and hard to put down. The reader was good, except for periods of transition from Salem to the translator. Something more needed to be done to give an alert that the transition was occurring. It took me a while to realize I was now in the present day rather than in Salem. Other than that, it was an amazing read (listen).

Worthy story and generally well told. The exploration of presumptions was intriguing. I found the reading grating at times. When a reader can't do a certain voice well, I'd rather they just used their own voice.
