History Comes to Life with Real Magic near Salem
A story of the narrow minded. Bless her for keeping a diary, I wonder how much of it is true. It's a beautiful thing to imagine how harmonious Indians where with the land. Varied culture has been greatly lost with the advent of pop culture, mainstream media, and corporations. The world is similar inside any border these days, this story gives you insight into a different time. Sad to think that people would give up so much to cross oceans for freedom only to find a worse kind of stifling terror because of childish boredom. This is a story of history; one girl-turned women's loss and struggle in the early dawn of the Salem witch trials. The diary implies much and ends abruptly. It also gives the idea that she has an engrained deeper magic in her blood.
You will have many musings while listening, or at least I did. I wonder how many buildings and settlements to this day desecrate Indian burial sites or other kinds of holy lands. We all can be close minded, even me, this story will definitely give you something to chew on regardless of your beliefs. Christian or otherwise - the true moral here is of truth, tolerance, fortitude, and suffering. The injustice of meddlers and bored seekers of false justice. I wonder what happened next?
Great narrator. Random music. Excellent book.
Not my favorite listen but well done from start to finish. I listened to the whole thing in one sitting.
