When you need to get the real story about some of history's most fascinating women, call Stacy Schiff. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author's work includes Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) and Cleopatra: A Life. In her highly anticipated new book, The Witches: Salem, 1692, Schiff focuses on an infamous and dark period of American history, especially as it relates to women: the Salem witch trials.

Sarah Good

This is not a picture of Sarah, obviously, but Sarah's story is interesting: Sarah Good (July 11, 1653 – July 19, 1692) born in Salem Village (now Danvers), Massachusetts, was one of the first three women to be accused of witchcraft in the Salem witch trials of 1692. However, Sarah Good was accused of witchcraft in February of 1692 but was not hanged for witchcraft until July of 1692.
