am Mary. I am a witch." So begins the diary of Mary Newbury.
After watching her grandmother being tortured and hung as a witch, Mary
is determined to escape the same fate. With the aid of others, she
sets off for America along with others who are leaving England in search
of a new home. The year is 1659 and Mary knows she must keep her
secret to herself. But she is not alone. There are others like
her in the new world. But she must be very careful not to be found
out. Even her journal must be hidden so others won't know her secret.
But as witch hysteria reaches fever pitch and the village turns on her,
Mary must escape into the woods.
