In Salem's dark days of 1692 and 1693, young girls pointed fingers and accused others of witchcraft, sentencing them to torture or even death. When the cloud lifted, and accusations were shown to be false, the girls faced little, if any, penalty. Were they sorry? No one knows. Only one girl, Ann Putnam, Jr., felt moved to show remorse publicly. Fourteen years after the trials, Ann wrote a letter of apology. This is her story.

I read this in one night but then also went over it again to look at the graphic art. It was absolutely stunning in it's story telling through words and pictures. It was an interesting not often heard perspective on the Salem Witch Trials.
