9781466218284: Salem: A Novel

History comes to life. Salem is the story of America from the Mayflower to modern times. It's the story of two families—the Delanos and the Deanes—who arrive in the New World three years after the Mayflower. They soon find themselves caught up in a group of dissidents who settle in what is now Salem, Massachusetts. In the early chapters this is an heroic saga revealing the struggles of these two families as they face the raw, unforgiving world of seventeenth-century New England. But the struggle doesn’t stop in the seventeenth century. These proud families, the Delanos and the Deanes, clash throughout successive generations—from the earliest days of Puritan Salem to modern post-9/11 America, with Salem, New England, England and Europe as backdrops. The reader follows one generation after another of Delanos and Deanes as they deal with the weather, conflicting religious beliefs, Indians fighting for their very survival, British forces sent to keep order, and each other. See how Salem relates to the founding of Boston, Roger Williams, the famed witchcraft trials, the forming of America’s military, John Adams, privateering, wealthy shipping merchants, Alexander Graham Bell, and much more. With each passing chapter the reader is pulled deeper into the events that shaped Salem’s history and America’s history.
