The four afflicted girls... were brought in to the front of the room, screeching and crying out as they laid their eyes on the prisoner. Their fear flooded the room.... When it was quiet again, Mr. Hawthorne asked them to look upon Sarah Goode, and see if she were the person that hurt them. They all said yes, yes!.... Sarah Goode looked shocked and confused. She denied that she had... even been near the children. At that, Abigail Williams and Ann Putnam twisted and cried out that the witch was pinching and biting them.... It was terrifying to witness, and I felt a hot passion against Sarah Goode. Someone behind me muttered, "The woman should hang for this."
- "My name is Deliverance. This is my story....
Deliverance Trembley lives in Salem Village, where she must take care of her sickly sister, Mem, and finish her daily chores to avoid the wrath of her cruel uncle. But after four young girls from the village accuse some of the local women of being witches, the town becomes caught up in a witch hunt. When the villagers realize that Deliverance is a clever girl who possesses the skills to read and write, whispered accusations begin. Suddenly, Deliverance has more to worry about than just her uncle's temper, her ill sister, and the fate of the other women in town. Within the pages of her diary, Deliverance captures the panic, terror, suspicion, and hysteria that swept through Salem Village during one of the most infamous eras in American history."
