Mysterious story of two ancestral families. During the infamous Salem Witch Trials, Colonel Pyncheon profits by Matthew Maul's denunciation as a witch, by dispossessing Maul of his property, after he is hung. Maul curses Pyncheon before he dies, and the curse materializes, and seems to afflict later generations of Pyncheon's. The later generations of Maul's seem to be afflicted also. One descendant of 'the witch' victimizes a young, beautiful innocent of the Pyncheon family. Failure to abide by God's Law "Love The Neighbor as Thyself', doesn't go without punishment. All curses disolve with the declaration of love between descendants of Colonel Pyncheon and Matthew Maule. Have a good college dictionary handy when you read it, I counted 3 1/2 pages of words\definations, I wasn familiar with.
