The Book of Maggie Bradstreet
It does not take long for Maggie's Father to be drawn into this mess and accused themselves, but they flee, trying hard to get away from the accusers. They are not used to life on the road, in such hard conditions, because they are used to the luxuries they have at home but they make do. They want to avoid being burned as witches, or drowned.
When Maggie's Uncle finds them to tell them the news, she cannot make sense of why they had to hang her dog. A lot of thing was making no sense to her, and she wishes she had never been so curious about the witches, the trials and all of that.
When they finally are able to return home Maggie discovers that though they are out of danger things have greatly changed, and somehow she must learn to accept those changes as hard as it is.
The Book of Maggie Bradstreet is a Historical fiction read, that I feel older children and young adults would enjoy if they are into historical fiction. Five stars...
