In a lively and readable style, Christine Goodier provides a who’s who of the events, and an interesting angle on the trials themselves. She emphasizes that the accused were merely flesh and blood, not demons, arguing that they were poor, uneducated people who were at worst misguided. A terrible injustice was done 400 years ago when they were famously convicted of witchcraft and hanged.
