How to Hang a Witch
Read by the author. Get you free copy from SYNC, this week.
Salem, Massachusetts, is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam and her stepmother are not exactly welcomed with open arms. Sam is the descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those ancient trials, and almost immediately she becomes the enemy of a group of girls that call themselves the Descendants.
If dealing with that wasn’t enough, Sam also comes face to face with a real live (well, technically dead) ghost. A handsome, angry ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff. But soon Sam discovers she is at the center of a centuries-old curse affecting anyone with ties to the trials. Sam must come to terms with the ghost and find a way to work with the Descendants to stop a deadly cycle that has been going on since the first accused witch was hung. If any town should have learned its lesson, it’s Salem, but as Sam and her enemies soon find, history may be about to repeat itself.
A Classic… The scarlet letter
By Nathaniel Hawthorne.
A stark and allegorical tale of adultery, guilt, and social repression in Puritan New England, The Scarlet Letter is a foundational work of American literature. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s exploration of the dichotomy between the public and private self, internal passion and external convention, gives us the unforgettable Hester Prynne, who discovers strength in the face of ostracism and emerges as a heroine ahead of her time. As Kathryn Harrison points out in her Introduction, Hester is “the herald of the modern American heroine, a mother of such strength and stature that she towers over her progeny much as she does the citizens of Salem.” Don’t miss out on your Free copy here!
