    The root of this book is a good idea following Tituba s daughter in the wake of the Salem witch trials but it s an idea that has been padded and stuffed and plumped and streeeeeeetched until it s almost a novel.

I swear I was thinking what if Tituba really was a witch and thought about specific details from the Trials that I could use in the story.And now my idea has been stolen Try to get an idea of how shocked I was when I saw this under released today in my Barnes and Noble email.Maybe she really was a witch.Yeah, I ll read this shivers

    I was lucky enough to snag one of these beauties at Bookcon 2019 a week ago Check out that cover, isn t it gorgeous As a modern day self identifying witch, the Salem Witch Trials have always been a source of fascination for me Tituba was the slave woman who was the first to be accused of witchcraft in the trials she was also the first to confess, which I believe came from a place of misunderstanding the language and fear but that s another story She was accused of bewitching Betty and Ab I was lucky enough to snag one of these beauties at Bookcon 2019 a week ago Check out that cover, isn t it gorgeous As a modern day self identifying witch, the Salem Witch Trials have always been a source of fascination for me Tituba was the slave woman who was the first to be accused of witchcraft in the trials she was also the first to confess, which I believe came from a place of misunderstanding the language and fear but that s another story She was accused of bewitching Betty and Abigail Parris, two of the girls she cared for in her master s house After an unknown buyer freed Tituba from the prison after the madness of the Trials, she was never heard from again.Something that I did not know prior to this novel is that Tituba had a daughter named Violet There is very little historical context for Violet, but as a slave this is, horrifyingly, to be expected.This novel is the story of what could have happened to Violet How the rage and fear after consuming her little town of Salem could consume her How the betrayal of of the girls Abigail and Betty , who she thought of as sisters would change who she was forever, by forcing her into the magic that her mother may or may not have also had.This is the story of one girl s revenge gone awry and the growth that comes with forgiveness

    I don t want to rate this book because I don t necessarily think it is a bad book, but it was just not a book that could keep my interest This is middle grade which I usually enjoy I DNF d this after reading about 54 pages.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I was intrigued by the concept of this book but grew increasingly disappointed as I got close to the end Violet s many worries about her mother s position in the witch trials initially speak to the complexity of the culture in which they occurred Tituba was manipulated and pushed to the brink, but Violet, only 13 and once friendly with Abigail and Betty, is caught up in the possibility that there were witches, and that there was some truth in what her mother said When she joins forces with El I was intrigued by the concept of this book but grew increasingly disappointed as I got close to the end Violet s many worries about her mother s position in the witch trials initially speak to the complexity of the culture in which they occurred Tituba was manipulated and pushed to the brink, but Violet, only 13 and once friendly with Abigail and Betty, is caught up in the possibility that there were witches, and that there was some truth in what her mother said When she joins forces with Elizabeth and Tammy poor, young girls suffering in the aftermath of the witch trials she learns quickly that despite their similarities and need for each other, they still hold racist concepts about Violet and her family that they have to unlearn.These complex layers drop almost as soon as citizens of Salem begin to drop, and Tammy becomes the clear cut villain Forgiveness and kindness save the day Abigail voices her regrets and apologies, and that s enough for Violet to forgive Thomas Parris is shockingly quick to believe Violet and go along with her plans, and Mistress Parris is suddenlywarm hearted None of this feels right or earned, and we never learnabout Tammy s trauma, which feels strangely convenient because it lets the readereasily view her as the book s final evil for Violet to conquer.Lots of exciting action in the middle but ultimately disappointing

    Let me start off by saying I really enjoyed this The storytelling was pretty smooth and I whipped through it in two days That said, I have mixed feelings about this one At first I was of the thought that if real magic didn t happen when these young women created the coven, I was going to be let down So much of the novel is historically accurate, so I figured the magic would be missing Not so But it s a different KIND of magic that the girls pull off So different from what was described Let me start off by saying I really enjoyed this The storytelling was pretty smooth and I whipped through it in two days That said, I have mixed feelings about this one At first I was of the thought that if real magic didn t happen when these young women created the coven, I was going to be let down So much of the novel is historically accurate, so I figured the magic would be missing Not so But it s a different KIND of magic that the girls pull off So different from what was described in the Salem witch trials Then the story gets bogged down in morals, which I get, and there are times when Violet is just repeating her concerns over and over again Violet is also headstrong and very independent in a time when I don t think that would have been something seen very often I think the girls would befearful of society, higher powers and just general spookiness of the woods It s fiction, I get it I just tend to hold historical fiction at a higher level Anyhoo, it s good read I kind of wish it had a Wiccan seal of approval because toes are being dipped in pools concerning the magic, but I hope to be able to recommend this to the right reader

    I heard the author give a talk about Only the Stars Know Her Name and after listening to how long she s been intrigued by the Salem witchcraft trials and visits Salem often, I HAD to buy the book because you could tell she was passionate about the subject matter.I wasn t disappointed The book is fantastic.I ve never heard of Tituba before, but that didn t matter because the story isabout her daughter anyway.While Violet s story is fictional, it s absolutely intriguing enough that kids wil I heard the author give a talk about Only the Stars Know Her Name and after listening to how long she s been intrigued by the Salem witchcraft trials and visits Salem often, I HAD to buy the book because you could tell she was passionate about the subject matter.I wasn t disappointed The book is fantastic.I ve never heard of Tituba before, but that didn t matter because the story isabout her daughter anyway.While Violet s story is fictional, it s absolutely intriguing enough that kids will google Tituba, so it s a nice segue into having a conversation about a true historic event.The author does a great job of making all the characters seem real but the magical realism elements familiars add just the right amount of intrigue and mysticism.Overall a fast and enjoyable read by an author who obviously knows and loves the subject
