"Are ye sure, Susanna English," he intoned in his best preaching voice, "that everything you have told me here, this seventh day of August in the year of our Lord sixteen hundred and ninety-two, is true?"
"Yes, Reverend, I am sure."
"Do you attest to these words of yours as being spoken truly from the heart and the mind, with no intent to do damage to others, but only to speak truth?"
"And ye will not recant later?"
"I'll not recant, Reverend."
"Nor have second thoughts?"
"I have had all my second thoughts, Reverend. And more. I am done with my doubts now." (23.11-18)
Susanna, you've got this. When Reverend Pike has Susanna swear that her story about Ann Putnam and the lying girls is true, she's all guts. This girl has been deciding not to tell anyone over and over again, but this time she's not wavering one bit. She sure has come a long way from the start of the book. How do you think her decision-making has changed over time? Are all the changes good?
