Set between January and September 1692 in a barn on the Marlboro family farm in Salem Village, Massachusetts, sixteen year old Tryphena longs for something more in life than housework and chores. Her sensitive older brother Cuddy is disgusted by the growing religious extremism within Salem Town and makes plans to escape to Harvard Divinity School in the fall. Dorcas, a girl of fifteen who is living with the Marlboros, is so happy to be here – but trauma from her past threatens to catch up to her at any moment. As the temperature in town rises, these three young people must grapple with the dangerous realities of being themselves in a world of unforgiving social structure.
