It's 1645. When Alice Hopkins' husband dies in a tragic accident, she returns to the small Essex town of Manningtree, where her brother Matthew still lives. But home is no longer a place of safety. Matthew has changed, and there are rumours spreading through the town: whispers of witchcraft, and of a great book, in which he is gathering women's names. To what lengths will Matthew's obsession drive him? And what choice will Alice make when she finds herself at the very heart of his plan?

Unfortunately this was another whiny by Amanda just like the one before. Sad, constant misery with no real kick to the story except more whining.

The book starts off rather dull with a lot of common sense advice. I wish she included more about her life, stories about her family and friends, experiences. I admire her honesty on some subjects and outlook on life.

The story is rather slow & drags out the small sections in the story for far too long. The characters are bitter, joyless & harpy. The ending is predictable and dull.

In 1994, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson were brutally murdered at her home in Brentwood, California. O. J. Simpson was tried for the crime, but was ultimately found not guilty of criminal charges. The victims' families brought civil cases against Simpson, in which he was found liable for willfully and wrongfully causing the deaths of Ron and Nicole by committing battery with malice and oppression. The Goldman family views this book as Simpson's confession.
