Come join us for another fun filled evening with the author Rosemary Chaulk. Author of Nissitissit Witch....(review of her book) The Nissitissit Witch captures the essence of a bygone era and exemplifies how narrow-mindedness and ignorance can lead to tragedy and regret. Following rumors of witchcraft, curses, and the work of the Devil, panic and hysteria force a community to retreat and ultimately vanish. Set in the town of North Village (which is now Pepperell, Massachusetts) the story begins in the late nineteenth century and, with the author's clever use of flashbacks, takes the reader further back in time. Ailing, old-timer Ebb recounts painful memories from both the Civil War and his childhood, trying to make sense of the trauma in his life. His return home is bittersweet, as he is controlled by an undeniable desire to enter the river's mist and embark upon a remarkable, spiritual journey. Thereupon, he discovers his sacred connection to Sarah, who was raised by Native Americans and later developed an aversion to the ways of the white man. We enter Sarah's mystical world as she struggles to assimilate into society. Her futile attempt to peacefully settle in North Village precedes an array of unusual encounters associated with her painful effort. So pull up that comfortable chair and grab your favorite drink. And join us as I talk with Ms. Chaulk about her book. All are welcome to call in with any questions or comments for either one of us.
