I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.
I don't know a lot about the Salem Witch Trials, but I did read the Scarlet Letter, The Crucible, and Wikipedia. And I think I've done more research than this. Luckily, this prologue is in third person. Which is a breath of fresh air after the first person in the last book by Geragotelis I read.
