- In this story, it is said that Prudence Warren left Salem with a friend of her mother's, Elizabeth, to go to Boston when she was still little. But in Whispers from the Past, it is clear that Prudence was still in Salem when Phoebe landed up there following which Prudence was labeled as a witch, thus necessitating her leaving the town. Additionally, in Whispers from the Past, Prudence's daughter Cassandra is already a young child, but in The Warren Witches, Prudence is getting ready for her marriage to Michael Wentworth (in fact, the story includes his discovery of magic).
