    Susan was a new author to me - having read and thoroughly enjoyed "Lady in Waiting", I came to this title with high expectations. The book is very interesting. Plus, there is a story within the story - first, we meet Lauren, who is coming to herself and learning to make it on her own, despite her family's wealth and privilege. Then, there is the diary of a young woman who was accused of being a witch during the Salem witch trials, on which Lauren is working. To me, this is such a unique way to tell a tale. I became completely engrossed in both plots. I felt a kinship with the main characters of both stories, plus Abigail, who owns the diary that is being transcribed, and her maid. Lauren learns a lot about herself, and grows as she works on the diary, into a strong and confident young woman. Her relationship with Abigail begins very formal and businesslike, and grows into a warm and loving friendship. I found it hard to put down.

    I recommend this book for teen and/or adult readers.
