The Salem Witch Trials is not an effin' book! They were a series of trials for witchcraft in 1692 Salem that condemned 19 innocent people.

Ann Rinaldi has written fiction about the witch panic in Salem. Worthwhile books about the trials include:

The Enemy Within by John Demos

In the Devil's Snare by Mary Beth Norton

Witch Hunt by Marc Aronson

A Fever in Salem by Laurie Carlson.

What is the plot of the book The Sacrifice by Kathleen Duble?

"The Sacrifice" is a historical fiction book loosely based on the author's family ancestry of Andover, Massachusetts. She was inspired to write this book when she moved to Andover in 1987 and her father taught her her family history. Her ancestors, the Faulkner's (family in the book.) The plot of the story takes place in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. The people of Salem Village and Andover are beginning to hear about the strange "fits" that supposed "bewitched" girls claim to have. They claim to be tormented by unseen apparitions that only they can see. The two oldest daughters of the family, Abigail and Dorothy Faulkner, are later accused of being a witch by their former female servant, Sarah Phelps. This later leads to the Salem Witch Trials where 19 innocent people were hanged for witchcraft, and one man was crushed to death, Giles Cory, a man who was tortured to death by crushing him until he died nearly two days later. He refused to give a plead of innocent or guilty, so he died in stubborness. As some advice, this book is one of the best historical fiction books on the Witch Trials I have ever read, and I HIGHLY recommend it! I don't think you will be dissapointed! :)
