I Call It Courage

The setting is cold and harsh but the story will warm you. Corrag by Susan Fletcher is about a girl in prison, accused of being a witch and sentenced to die! While she is waiting for her fate in a cold, dank prison, a man comes to talk to her for information about a massacre. In the process of their conversations we learn about her life and his thoughts as he writes letters to his wife. You can feel the cold, the fear, and the loneliness but cannot help being captivated by this young girl and her life in 17th Century Scotland. This is the kind of story that stays with you long after you have finished. It is based on a true event.
