In a time when singing, dancing and indulgence were forbidden, fears ran wild in the New England society. Five girls coming of age in Salem Village make a pact to stay bonded as sisters in a secret society. But peer pressure and politics weigh heavily on the shoulders of Abigail, Ann, Mercy, Mary and Betty. This powerful telling of the circumstances preceding the Salem witch trials exposes a powder keg environment that ignites a series of dark events the world will never forget.
