The Peruke Maker: The Salem Witch Hunt Curse by Ruby Dominguez

The Peruke Maker starts in the 17th Century - when the witch hunt hits a feverish peak. There we meet Bridget Cane, the Peruke Maker’s daughter. She is a youthful beauty with long, flowing, red hair, and who has just been condemned as a witch.

From there the story jumps to Sarah who lives in the 21st Century - and who due to a dreadful accident somehow forges a connection with Bridget’s ghost. Sarah begins to time travel between the present day and Bridget’s time taking a front row seat to the Salem witch trials and the curse of Thomas Cane.

I picked this book for review because I love to read anything dealing with the Salem Witch Trials. I find the subject fascinating and this gave a pretty gory and detailed version of some of the acts taking place at that time when it came to the torture and punishment that some of these so-called witches were put through. This story is written as a screenplay so that was a bit of a turn off for me because you really don’t get a lot of character definition (other than young woman, mid-20's, red hair, etc.), nor setting details.

With that said, I found that I really enjoyed it. It had enough suspense and intrigue to keep me interested. The story itself was full of tension and you just kept reading it with the hope that good would conquer evil in the end. Ultimately this a story about love and forgiveness that I can recommend to anyone interested in a quick read relative to the Salem Witch Trials, curses and magic.

The cover is pretty awesome looking, but with it written as a screenplay I don't forsee me reading it anytime soon. Those just aren't my style. I'm glad you enjoyed it though!
