Description-
  • Lauren, a college student, helps Abigail Boyles, an 80-year-old recluse, transcribe the diary of Abigail's ancestral cousin, Mercy Hayworth--who was hanged for witchcraft. As secrets unfold, the extent to which the lives of these three women are connected comes to light, and both Lauren and Abigail find the very way they view the world irrevocably changed.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Tavia Gilbert's clear, youthful diction adds appeal to her portrayal of college student Lauren Durough. She captures Lauren's determination to be independent, even though she relies on her parents for her college tuition. With empathy Gilbert portrays Lauren's job interview with octogenarian Abigail Boyle. Abigail agrees to hire Lauren to transcribe the journal of one of her ancestors, Mercy Hayworth. Mercy was tried and convicted of witchcraft in the seventeenth-century Salem witch trials--her journal is a firsthand account of the event. Gilbert maintains a high emotional pitch as listeners learn how Mercy reaches from the past to the present to transform this contemporary young woman. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
