Rebecca Southwick, a 10th generation Salem woman, brings a unique approach to the victims of the Salem Witch Trials based on the true stories of her irrepressible ancestors. One woman faces unforeseen challenges after traveling to the New World, one faces being sold into slavery, and one fears for her life after she begins hearing voices. Will they all be hanged for their sins?
In 1638, Cassandra Southwick wonders if she has made an enormous mistake. She made the epic journey to Salem, Massachusetts Bay Colony with her husband and their five children to escape religious persecution. She expects a freer life in the New World… but she's in for a big surprise. In 1659, frightened out of her wits, Provided Southwick stands on the auction block to be sold as a slave. Her crime? She's not attending the Puritan Church. Instead, she's been secretly meeting with people who value women's voices––the Quakers. The Quakers are hanged for espousing their beliefs, beliefs that she shares. Will she be next? In 1692, Mercy Southwick fears for her life as the Salem Witch Trials rage. She's hearing voices and seeing spirits––is she a witch? After befriending two of the girls who are accusing women of witchcraft, she tries to stop them. Will they betray her and see her hanged too? Ten generations later, Rebecca Southwick shares the true stories of the Salem Witch Trials based on the lives of her ancestors.
