In the year 1692, life changes forever for ten-year-old Abigail Faulkner and her family. In Salem, Massachusetts, witches have been found, and widespread fear and panic reign mere miles from Abigail's home of Andover. When two girls are brought from Salem to identify witches in Andover, suspicion sweeps the town as well-respected members of the community are accused of witchcraft. It isn't long before chaos consumes Andover, and the Faulkners find themselves in the center of it all when friend turns themselves in the center of it all when friend turns against friend, neighbor against neighbor, in a desperate fight for the truth. At the heart of this gripping story are Abigail and her sister, Dorothy, who together must find a way to persevere during a period marked by terror, adversity, and ignorance.Told from Abigail's point of view and based on actual events in the author's own family history, "The Sacrifice" offers a unique perspective of the Salem witch trials by delving into the devastating effects the trials had not just in Salem but throughout Massachusetts.
This is another good book set in a historical place, also another one that is based on a story in the authors family life. I really enjoyed reading this, I flew through it in less then 2 hours and loved it, the only thing I really disliked was the fact that the ending was kind of shady, it didn't really say what happened, it just kind of ended? Which is kind of annoying for me, I like a more complete story. the story overall is very good and shows a different side of the story, the one not set in Salem.
