EVIL VISITS SALEM

When two young girls start acting bizarre and violent, they are diagnosed as bewitched by the village doctor. The "afflicted children" begin accusing villagers of witchcraft, a crime punishable by death. Lucifer's plan to wreak havoc on the community is set in motion, and his demons revel in the turmoil they are inflicting upon innocent people, including the saintly and beloved Rebecca Nurse. 

Lydia Knapp watches her loved ones suffer and die. Will Rebecca's prayers be enough to strengthen the angel army, and help Lydia discover hope? Will Lydia have to sacrifice everything to stand up for the truth? 

Afflicted is a fast-paced, riveting read, which exposes the dangers of Pharisee religion, and how it promotes fear. This new insight into one of our nation's most tragic events reveals the significance of God's grace, and the necessity of prayer to fight spiritual warfare. 

If you like Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness, then you'll enjoy this page-turning fictional account of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. 

Prepare to stay up all night with this gripping tale of suspenseful tension, and unforgettable characters. 
 

Reviews
A battle of good and evil plays out during the Salem Witch Trials in this haunting inspirational from Ott (A Time to Heal). Lydia Knapp and three of her friends ask Ann Putnam, the daughter of an established local family, to lead them to clairvoyant slave Tituba. Lydia is looking for the name of her future husband, but instead she unknowingly opens a door to evil. Meanwhile, the demon Sonneillon, along with three other demons, has been called to Salem for the upcoming witch trials, and Tituba’s ritual helps their cause. When Tituba predicts that death is coming, Ann forces everyone into silence. But soon, two girls who accompanied Lydia come down with a strange sickness blamed on demonic possession, and the town of Salem is thrown into an uproar. With angels of God posted on guard (unbeknownst to Salem’s Christians, whose prayers summoned them), awaiting permission from angel Raphael to intervene, Sonneillon and his demons put Lucifer’s plans into action by possessing anyone they can. With the angels holding on to the prayers of the faithful few and awaiting more faithful adherents to create a “prayer cover” so that they can intervene, Lydia must confront her family’s dark history and the role they played in bringing about the trials. Ott skillfully recasts the Salem Witch Trials as a Christian battle for the soul of the New World in this thrilling tale. (BookLife)
