Date:September 8, 2010
Ive just finished listening to this and it was absolutely brilliant. Its one of those books that you don't want to end. One that you get lost in completely.I really liked the fact that is set in the present, but has links to the past, with the diary of a girl living during the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The book switches easily between the two time periods and I just like Laura who is transcribing it, I also wanted to know what was going to happen. Then just when you think youve worked out the whole story there is another twist that you didnt see coming!Tavia Gilbilert is an excellent narrator getting the characters voices and accents just right throughout.Susan Meissner has written a wonderful story about the preconceptions and assumptions we make about people we dont really know. It tackles issues of class, race and religion brilliantly, making me think about the way I behave too. One particular comment from Mercys diary that really got me thinking is Someone can say something untrue about you, and as long as there is someone else to believe it, you are whatever they say you are. Ive not read or listened to any other books by this author, but I will certainly look out for them in the future.Thanks to christianaudio.com Reviewers Program for this copy.
