7 23 19 ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshNo no no no no, this is scary.We learned some stuff about the Salem Witch Trials in my Western Civ class today. Tituba was a character from the Trials that always stood out to me A video in class mentioned that Tituba told stories of witches and stuff so that was why she was suspected.I swear I m not lying, I literally had the idea for a story about Tituba s daughter today. 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 managed to grab an arc of this at BookCon this year so this review is based on an early copy and not the finished edition I had never heard of this before getting a copy of it and I actually quite enjoyed it It is very easy to read and it is quite simple but it is middle grade so I can t quite complain I thought the story was interesting I haven t read much about the Salem witch trials and I really want to learnabout them now Overall, this was a nice story and very easy to get through so I would recommend it It comes out July 23 in the US so if you enjoy middle grade books and historical witchy fantasy, you should read it. 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 received an ARC copy of this book at BookCon in NYC in June 2019 This book was an easy but addicting read If you re interested in learning about real history of the Salem Witch Trials with a twist of dramatization, this book is for you This novel is based on a true story of a woman named Tituba and what could have happened with her daughter, Violet, after her and her husband were found guilty and sent away after the trials Not a lot of information was given after the Salem Witch Trials about Violet but the author does an excellent job depicting the innocence of the 13 year old girl that got left behind and what she can accomplish out of anger, determination and a little bit of magic. I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I like this book It s full of magic and gray scale morality and the determination of underestimated young girls While the historical setting often leads to dialogue that doesn t sound natural for girls of this age, I really enjoyed the Salem post witch trials setting.Violet has to balance her own values versus revenge or rather, as she realizes she actually needs, closure after the horrors of the witch trials forced her to question her own mother s goodness I sometimes wanted to reach into the book and yell No Get revenge Revenge but, well, that s exactly the conflict at hand in this book Violet s sensitive nature means that she has to go on this journey of self discovery to figure out what she really needs in order to heal And it s a great read. REVENGE MAGIC SALEM WITCH TRIALS BADASSD PROTAGONIST I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW A fascinating novel that not only follows the aftermath of the Salem Witch Trials but also gives a voice to a person lost to history.Little is known about Violet Indian, daughter of Tituba, the first to be accused of witchcraft and the first to confess and name co conspirators This novel follows Violet during the aftermath of the trials, leaving her an orphan slave, a practice too horrifying common during these dark times It is a tale that follows the Salem hysteria aftermath, giving insight into the world for young readers to understand how much hate and fear and control a body of people This makes for a compelling read as well as an important one for young readers in helping them understand today s socially divided climate.For Violet, the Salem Witch Trials turned her life upside down Betty and Abigail, although they were her masters, were her friends By establishing these dynamics, This shows how racism is taught, not inherited Moreover, for her newfound friends, Violet is a means to power and revenge Violet falls into the same trap the people of Salem fell into, the trap of letting hatred blind However, with the power she has, she learns not to let it blind her Violet learns, and through learning goes on this powerful journey of forgiveness and acceptance.Appropriate for young readers, this story shows how society should not discriminate or give in to fear and hatred, to everything that breeds social conflict It teaches the lesson that racism is taught and that the best way to go through life is not by living in fear or in that darkness, but instead through love and forgiveness Violet goes on this journey, emotionally and mentally, sending a powerful message to young readers The historical context additionally gives the message depth and further shows the dangers of mass hysteria and giving in to fear and hatred while also resonating with the world today, making it a truly remarkable and relatable read. 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. ^Download Kindle ⇭ Only the Stars Know Her Name: Salem’s Lost Story of Tituba’s Daughter ⇷ False Accusations And False Confessions Of Witchcraft In Salem, Massachusetts, Took Her Mother, Tituba, Away From Her Now Violet Seeks Revenge On Those Who Tore Her Family Apart Readers Will Be Instantly Transported Back In Time In This Dark And Gripping Novel It S Been A Year Since The Salem Witch Trials Ended, And While The Townspeople Try Their Best To Act Like Nothing Happened, Thirteen Year Old Violet Simply Can T, As Everything She Held Dear Was Ripped Away From Her Her Mother, Tituba, Was Accused Of Witchcraft By Betty And Abigail Parris, Two Girls Violet Had Grown Up With And Regarded As Sisters And Instead Of Denying Those Allegations, Tituba Had Confessed To The Crimes But Why Her Mother Would Never Have Done The Wicked Acts She Was Charged With Would She Once The Remaining Accused Of Witchcraft Are Pardoned, Violet Inquires About Her Missing Parents, Only To Learn That Reverend Parris Has Sold Them To A Man Who Took Them North Now Filled With Rage And Wanting Retribution, She Comes Across Tammy Younger And Elizabeth Prince, Two Girls Who Re Also Seeking Vengeance Amid All This Turmoil Together, The Three Form A Coven, Signing Their Names To The Devil S Book, And They Find Solace In The Newness And Excitement Of The Magic They Re PracticingBut Once The Magic Grows Darker And Forges A Destructive Path Through Their Community, Will Violet Achieve The Closure She Longs For, Or Will The Darkness Consume Them All This Historical, Powerful Story Of Family, Revenge, And Reconciling Is A Can T Miss Novel From Amanda Marrone
