With the town of Salem in a state of panic over the idea of witches living amongst them, Abigail and her sister are suddenly arrested for being witches themselves, but when their trial date nears, their mother makes the ultimate sacrifice for them - forcing the two girls to make the decision to turn on their mother in order to save their own lives.

The Sacrifice brings the period of hysteria surrounding the Salem Witch Trials to life as we are introduced to Abigail, aged ten, and her family, members of the village of Andover. Abigail is a bit of a rebel in her Puritan village; she sometimes speaks when she shouldn't and runs with her legs exposed when it's not seemly to do so. Nevertheless, she and her family could never fathom being accused of witchcraft until her minister grandfather speaks out against the girls making the accusations; suddenly Abigail's Aunt Elizabeth, her sister Dorothy, and even Abigail herself find themselves jailed and at the mercy of the townspeople. It is at this time that the sacrifice comes into play; Abigail's mother cannot bear to see her young daughters imprisoned and thus makes a bargain that seals all of their fates.

The idea that this particular retelling of the hysteria has some basis in fact helped me to embrace the story. The author discovered that she was a descendent of Abigail Faulkner, and built her story around her research. While I found some of Abigail's actions a bit questionable for a young lady in such a strict Puritan society, I did enjoy her character and felt the author did a good job weaving fiction into the tale. I do believe that this novel is marketed older than its intended audience; the reading style and level clearly work more for pre-teen than for the young adult market. I also at times found the dialogue a bit stilted, though I suspect the author was attempting to capture the atmosphere of the times.

Overall this is an excellent introduction into a time in our nation's history that leaves many of us bewildered at how easily a group of young girls managed to send so many innocents to their deaths. Enjoyable and fast reading.

Abigail Faulkner is a brave, free-spiritedgirl who lives in Andover and soon finds herself caught up in the hysteria of the Salem witch trials. As the accusations of witchcraft spread, Abigail, her sister, and her aunt are all accused.

I have always been fascinated by this time in history and wondered how people could have been so easily swept into this madness. The author, a descendant of the real Abigail Faulkner, based the story on some of her ancestors who were accused of withcraft.

Excellent read, especially for middle schoolers.

I was a good book. I think the author did especially well incorporating the historic context, giving appropriate twists to further the plot and mood. My teacher has killed the genre a little though, so it's hard to appretiate it entirely. I mean, every book we've read in Literature this year has been historical fiction during a conflict.

This is a short but very well written book about the cultural and social conditions during the Salem Witch Trials. I think it falls into the YA category, but I enjoyed it immensely.

Very good read. I had a personal reason for wanting to read this as I am a direct descendant of Joseph Marble 1650-1728.who was born in Andover, MA, and was involved in the Salem Witch Trials. Joseph Marble married Marry Faulkner who is the sister of Francis Faulkner. Francis Faulkner is the Father and husband of the main characters in this book that were accused of witchcraft and imprisoned. My Great Grandfather by 8 generations, Joseph Marble, signed a petition for the release of Abigail Dane Faulkner (Josephs Sister In Law) and her two young daughters. He also helped pay for their release when they were acquitted of their charges. If you want to do the research you can find the original documents with his name on them. It is a very sad yet fascinating part of history, and I am proud that I come from a line of level headed people that were against the witch trials.

This is a good book but I was told that it was hard to stay engaged in the book without getting bored. Another friend said her daughter read it and loved it, so depends on the child I guess.

This story of my 6th great grandmother and her family was fascinating to read, and gave me details I had never imagined. Readers young and old will be able to relate to the human toll this sad time in our nation's history took. Concise and direct the book moves along quickly, keeping the reader engaged and hungry for more.

Great transaction and product
