What she doesn’t realize is that the leader of the group, the malicious Ann Putnam, is about to set off a torrent of false accusations leading to the imprisonment and execution of countless innocent people. When Susanna puts the pieces together, she faces a painful choice. She can keep quiet and let the witch-hunt panic continue, or she can “break charity” with the group—and risk having her family named as witches.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A graceful blend of fiction and history…The artful placement of Susannah as an observer provides a 360-degree view of the causes and effects of inexplicable mass persecution. At the same time, the author’s quiet, factual style stands in a soothing contrast to her inherently shocking and histrionic subject matter. Finely tuned, well researched, and very accessible, this novel ranks with Rinaldi’s finest work.” Publishers Weekly
“Rich with details…A Break with Charity portrays an excruciating era in American history from a unique perspective, and it will be enjoyed by readers who enjoy psychology, the supernatural, and history.” School Library Journal
“Rinaldi’s research is flawless and her period familiarity striking, but her strongest power is as a storyteller.” Children’s Literature
“Fine historical fiction; Rinaldi at her best.” Kirkus Reviews
