Rebecca Nurse is a wonderful woman. She is pious, noble, honest, and caring. She has no motives, she only wishes for the good of her community. The Putnams are a whole other story. Mr. Putnam has a long standing Grudge, and Mrs. Putnam blames Rebecca Nurse for the stillborn deaths of her children. Their motives, unlike the motives of Rebecca nurse, are vindicitve..... and deadly.
