In an era of uncertain survival in the New World, the Devil himself was believed to prey on society--and his witches could be convicted by mere children. Deliverance from Evil brings to life the Salem witch trials, one of the most uncanny times in our nation's history. Young girls in trances pointed out neighbors, leaders, relatives--over 150 people were arrested, with many hanged for their supposed sins. Frances Hill, author of A Delusion of Satan, brings her deep historical and political understanding together with her honed skills as a novelist to produce a picture of the trials both realistic and emotional. She has written an extraordinary and gripping novel of hysteria, power plays, and love in colonial America.
FRANCES HILL is a historian, novelist, and journalist whose previous books include A Delusion of Satan: The Full Story of the Salem Witch Trials Reader, Hunting for Witches: A Visitor's Guide to the Salem Witch Trials, and Such Men Are Dangerous: The Fanatics of 1692 and 2004.
