THE PERFUME OF SOULS is a contemporary YA novel based on the premise that restless spirits may attempt to satisfy their thwarted passions through the living.
There are no known images of Margaret Jacobs or her grandfather, just as there are no known trial records. Her grandfather wears a red cape (note his walking stick on the floor). Margaret is in the tawny skirt, pointing – accusing him of witchcraft. Her mother, known to be mentally disturbed, lunges at her from behind. Margaret’s father, George Jr. is beside George Sr. The young people in the front are having “fits”.
Entries from the (fictitious) diary of Reverend Samuel Parris are included in THE PERFUME OF SOULS
