“My name is Abigail Hobbs and I am 17 years of age. I live in Salem, a town with a population of 600. I am writing to you today because tomorrow I will be dead; hanged, along with 20 other young women from my town accused of witchcraft.”
Set in a small village in the puritanical America of the 17th century, this is the story of Abigail Hobbs, the lifestyle of the American settlers, their relationship with the native Americans, their fight for survival, and the pressure exerted on young women by a ruthless patriarchy and religious fanaticism.
