Book Review: The Witches by Stacy Schiff

St Albans Review News - Tue, 10/05/2016 - 9:38am

The first hanging took place in June, the last in September; a stark, stunned silence followed. What discomfited those who survived the ordeal was not the cunning practice of witchcraft but the clumsy administration of justice. Innocents indeed appeared to have hanged. But guilty parties had escaped.’
