A Time of Leaving
Gretchen feared that the village of Newbury was catching the “Witch Fever”. The horrors of what was happening in Salem and Ipswich were spreading and it was getting harder to count how many innocents had died in the fires of madness born of the Puritan’s radical beliefs. She considered fleeing to some other part of the world where the risk of being branded a Witch and burned alive was something that a young woman need not fear. Of course, unlike those poor unfortunates in Salem and Ipswich, Gretchen really was a Witch.
