Ann Petry Harper Trophy, 1964, 254 pp., $5.99
He went on beating her and went on shouting, "Say that you're a witch."
"Master, stop. What is it you want me to say?" she said distinctly.
"Say that you're a witch."
"Very well master. I am a witch."
Tituba is a strong and talented black slave who is sold to a minister's needy family. Now, she must take care of her sickly mistress, sly eight-year-old Abigail Wiliams, little frightened Betsey, and impossible Reverend Parris. While living in Salem Village, Tituba, Abigail, and Betsey meet a group of boundgirls who find out that Tituba can tell fortunes. The girls did not want to get into trouble by their masters, so they began throwing fits and blaming Tituba, saying she bewitched them. To find out if Tituba takes the blame for the girls, read Tituba of Salem Village.
This historical fiction book teaches you not to get involved with gossip and not to bury your mistakes with lies. Ann Petry adds excitement to the story by leaving the reader interested about how people in court reached their verdicts and believed spectral evidence. I would recommend this book to people interested in the Salem Witch Trials and who would enjoy a book with a great lesson and exciting plot.
