More About A Witch in the Family by Stephen Hawley Martin
 
 
 
Overview
Findings by University of Virginia researchers have compelled award-winning author Stephen Hawley Martin to reconsider what led to the 1692 witch hysteria that ravaged the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Hence this new edition of his Amazon 4.5-star-rated book first published in 2006. Martin writes that now, after 325 years, the discovery by U.Va. provides the missing piece of the puzzle that makes the others fall into place. Nineteen were hanged, including the author's seven-times-great grandmother, one was crushed to death, and five died in prison. Why? Were the so-called "afflicted" faking their symptoms as many historians maintain? Martin didn't think so in 2006, and he does not think so now. He pursues several avenues of investigation that include the remarkable power of belief, the possibility indicated by quantum physics experiments that thought creates reality, and arrives at an explanation thought to be impossible until the U.Va. findings were released. "A Witch in the Family" is nothing less than a riveting, real-life murder mystery-the ultimate reality show no one who wants to know the truth should miss.
