“La bruja Lois” Elizabeth Gaskell & Elena Ferrándiz | Avenauta, Spain | 176pp | Paperback | 13 x 22 cm
End of the 17th century. Lois Barclay is an eighteen-year-old English girl who is orphaned, but before dying she promises her mother that she will move with her uncles to Salem, in the United States. Once there, Lois is wrongly accused of witchcraft and can only see how her life spirals hopelessly toward tragedy. The English author Elizabeth Gaskell (1810 -1865) was the first to capture in a literary work the terrible Salem witch trials, known worldwide almost a hundred years later thanks to the famous play The Crucible, by Arthur Miller.
