An okay YA book about the Salem Witch Trials Our heroine is the 12 year old Mary who seems to share a first name with half of the village She helps her widowed mother run a farm but Mary is mostly interested in the gossip of Salem Village This is fair history mind you much of it taken directly from contemporary accounts but I didn't think the ending where Mary and her brother manage to rescue her mother on her way to her execution was much than wishful thinking


Er mother don't hear about the rumors right away They don't know that many of the villagers believe that some of Mary's friends have had spells cast on them by witches Or Beyond The PDF that one. I never thought I'd finish this one My children and I have this term we use magic noodles and this book was the first time it's been applied to anything other than actual noodles You see we are fans of a local Southeast Asian restaurant that happens to make a wide variety of fantastic noodle dishes Every time we have their noodles they seem to multiply If we get take away we have our meal but the containers appear to have refilled to the original level This happens for several days worth of leftovers until they finally disappearBy the time I had reached the midpoint of Beyond the Burning Time it occurred to me that despite diligently reading chapter after chapter they really aren't long it truly felt like it was going to take longer and longer than I could fathom to finish It had become magic noodles but not in as rewarding a wayI would like to give Lasky a lot of credit for presenting a believable and understandable tale about the Witch Trials that young teens could be hooked by and grasp Ironically the most challenging and frustrating thing about the book is also the thing that can best illustrate the underlying difficulty the folks of Salem had making sense of the events That thing is the simple fact that so many of the people in and around the village of Salem had the same names and names they were referred to by like Mary and GoodyIt was difficult to keep the characters and their relationships straight A character listing with key details would have been helpful but in the spirit of the historical period such cheat sheets weren't available or used It seemed clear to me upon reflection that if I had difficulty remembering the facts and details of the players how on Earth could the folks of the time with the limited informational skills possibily have discerned the connections between the individuals and the powerplays that were at work behind the scenesPersonally I'd like to see this book used in class with note taking and discussions of motives and women's roles and the socio religious politics of the time I do believe 8th graders can wrap their heads around it Some 7th graders could as well

Kathryn Lasky has created a a beautifully told piece of Historical Fiction a book about the Salem Witch Trials as sen through the eyes of one family and in particular a girl by the name of Mary and her brother CalebI've read many books on this subject and Beyond the Burning Time deserves to be recognized as up there with the best The characters and time period come to life And you will most likely find yourself confused horrified and in disbelief that events such as this ever happened in this great country But along with other terrible events they did indeedThis is a work of fiction in that some of the characters are inventions of fiction but the events as everyone knows are not Nor are all the characters in this bookI do not seem to get tired of this subject when it is done well most likely because I never get the answers I seek as nobody really can In BTBT Mary and Caleb's mother is accused of being a witch and much of the book revolves around that plot point but not all of it as many are accused and yes expect a bit of brutality but then again you probably already knew that This book is marketed as YA but anyone can read it if they are interested in the subject natter It is wonderfully written hauntingly atmospheric and deeply touching My favorite book on this subject will always be The witch of Blackbird pond but this is an excellent book that deserves to be read
