Salem Massachusetts, 1692: Tituba curses two young girls, but Ann Putnam Jr. isn't one of them. In order to help save her friends, Ann develops a plan to accuse the remaining supposed witches of Salem. As the death count rises, each lie buries her deeper and deeper under a curse of her own doing. This tragic experience of guilt, abuse, power, and love gives a first-person view into the spine-chilling months where neighbor turned on neighbor at the word of a little girl.
“A bewitching and captivating remake of The Salem Witch Trials illustrating the horror of what power, fear and accusations can cause in society. Highly recommended.”
- M. Weidenbenner, Amazon Bestselling Author of Cache a Predator and Scattered Links
". . . An incredibly well-woven story which leaves the reader wanting more . . . the story itself pulled me in as a beautiful piece of art."
- Emilie Brooker, rootsgrowingdeep
"Though Lies is a quick read, you'll be left feeling satisfied at the end. I would recommend Lies to any fan of historical fiction. The protagonist is younger, but the story ascends her age. You cannot go wrong with reading Lies."
- Kristen Noel, Pretty Little Pages
"I adored this book. . . While short, Lies is a poignant and chilling story that I think everyone should read!"
- Zara Hoffman, author of The Belgrave Daughter. [Full review here]
"Full of lessons that can be learned today, Lies takes you back to the Salem Witch Trials in a fresh but bewitching way."
- Bethany Cripe, writer and blogger at thehanoverchronicles
Interesting facts about the Salem witch trials
Two dogs were accused and killed as witches. (source)
The four year old daughter of an accused "witch" was arrested, put in prison, in trial, and was found guilty through her timid replies. A new pair of handcuffs had to be fashioned because her hands were too small to fit in the normal ones. (source)
Octogenarian Giles Corey was pressed to death. He was stripped naked, forced onto the ground under a board as heavy rocks and boulders were placed above him until he confessed. He remained silent, only asking for more weight, so that his death would come more quickly. (source)
March 11, the publication date of "Lies," is the day in 1692 where Ann Putnam Jr. first displayed symptoms of affliction by witchcraft. (This is where the story REALLY gets going in the book). (source)
