SALEM WITCH: MY SIDE OF THE STORY is told from two different perspectives.
Elizabeth is a young girl living in Boston who unfortunately angers the wrong people: her cousin and her cousin's friends. Suddenly, Elizabeth finds herself being accused of being a witch! And this isn't good news since the town of Boston recently hung a few accused "witches."
Can Elizabeth prove her innocence before she is hanged? What will happen if no one believes that she's innocent of these charges?
George is the son of a very prominent Bostonian. He is around for all of these witch accusations and becomes increasingly afraid of the horrors happening throughout the town. When his best friend, Elizabeth, is accused of being a witch, George knows this witch business might not be truly legit.
Can George save his friend from the horrors of being named a witch? Or will George stick to his family ties, mainly his father, and persecute all women accused of being a witch?
