Salem 17th Century – A Bizarre and Deadly Detour in American Dark History!

coverlowresRuby Dominguez Delivers a Spine Tingling 17th Century of American Dark History to her Readers in Her Newest Fiction Horror/Romance Screenplay, THE PERUKE MAKER – The Salem Witch Hunt Curse, Published by Outskirts Press

THE PERUKE MAKER – The Salem Witch Hunt Curse  is a compelling and suspenseful story that focuses on the infamous Salem Witch Hunt Curse, an ancient and evil practice which is unearthed from necromancy and violates the course of natural events in a modern day world.

Inspired by true events, The Peruke Maker is a well researched screenplay about the  spiritual and emotional journeys of Bridget Cane, a stunning 17th century red haired beauty, and Sarah, a thoroughly 21st century woman.  Their paths become inextricably bound across time and space as Thomas Cane’s vengeful curse continues to threaten the virtuous during this relentless quest for an avenger of innocent blood.

Like the book’s 21st century time traveler, Sarah, the author’s readers are introduced to this earlier, frightening world by the startling image of Bridget Cane, scantily clad, frozen in fear, her own imminent death portended by the Banshee’s bloodcurdling cries, set against the background of a witch hunt that has reached a feverish pitch in a society where the fear of sorcery and the devil is as real as God.

The story builds with heightened tension and conflict and fittingly ends in present day New York City when Sarah’s journey ultimately comes full circle as Michael’s love for her triumphs over the evil she must face in 17th century Salem.  The suspense leading to her final redemption climaxes in a dramatic and magical act of rebirth which transcends the grave at the exact stroke of midnight on the Autumnal Equinox.

This is a beautiful illustration which captures the very essence of what this story is all about: love and forgiveness.~

How the story came to be:

An ink creation born out of a mystical dream after trying on a 100% hand-tied human hair wig that I purchased online as described to be harvested from a reliable and youthful donor.

I woke-up from the dream in shivers, seemingly reliving a dark history of a young woman’s horrifying fate named Bridget and her father’s (The Peruke Maker) vindictive quest for justice beyond the grave.

In Salem, Massachusettes from three centuries ago, the Peruke Maker’s Shop lay hidden behind a forgotten and abandoned room of an old crematorium built-up with dust and cobwebs with a finished white wig still sits by the boarded up window to this day.

Wefts of yak, goat, horse and human hair, fishhook-like needles, pomade, powder and a wooden head are laid down on a work table wherein a pair of rusty, blood-stained scissors, entwined with strands of Bridget’s red hair eerily rests by the wall mirror.

I personally have decided to travel to Salem, Massachusettes on a book tour this October 2009 and  investigate the existence of the Peruke Maker’s Shop, and retrace his daughter, Bridget’s agonizing ordeal in Gallows Hill.

    The author, Ruby Dominguez is challenged by the conflicting complexities of the past and future. Undeterred, she strokes with pen the somber and bright hues of her visions.

    THE PERUKE MAKER, inspired by true events, is a meticulously researched screenplay that is laced with relevance and substance. We follow the unforgettable spiritual and emotional journey of BRIDGET CANE, a stunning 17th Century woman and SARAH, a product of the 2lst Century who are inextricably bound together in a tenuous journey that comes full circle.

    The banality of evil which pervades 17th Century Salem, Massachusetts is captured by the screenwriter with penetrating insight as we follow one young woman’s deadly encounter with the forces of Good and Evil. This compelling journey is deftly played against a storyline that has meaningful things to say about the inherent vulnerability of the human condition. – by Lee Levinson/Lejen Literary Consultants

    Dominguez, Ruby. “The Peruke Maker: The Salem Witch Hunt Curse”. Outskirts Press, 2009.

    “The Peruke Maker” is a novel inspired by true events. It deals with ancient and evil practices that go against the natural events of the world. Bridget Cane is beautiful with red hair and as she embarks on an emotional and spiritual journey in the 17th century, her story becomes bound with the story of another woman, Sarah who lives in the 21st century. It seems that the curse of Thomas Cane continues.

    Sarah is a time traveler and she has visions of Bridget whose life is set during the time of the Salem witch trials. As the story continues we see that there is something that the two women share. To say anymore would ruin an exciting read but it is enough to say that the complexities of the past and the future come together against the backdrop of good and evil and we become witness to evil and sense the vulnerability of the human condition.

    This is a novel that will keep you turning pages as fast as you can and the author has done a wonderful job in telling her story.” – By Amos Lassen
