The story of the oppressive puritan times in Salem featuring an accused witch, the judge who has accused and sentenced her, and two men of god, both of whom are strong in their convictions though both are on different sides of the issue.

I've always wanted to write a sequel to this story. The characters would have been a lot of fun to follow as they settle in th Rhode Island area. Think of the historical people they would have encountered. It would make a enchanting novel. Except that some of the church history depicted here is a bit off the mark.

Is it my imagination or is Judge Cotton Mather "possessed" by the spirit of the Great Gildersleeve?
