Small-town librarian and psychic Ophelia Jensen hails from a long line of wise and wonderfully gifted women. There's her grandmother, Abby, a talented witch, and her great-aunt Mary, who's about to celebrate her 100th birthday. But as Ophelia learns, when she and Abby travel to North Carolina for the centennial celebration, their family secrets aren't just magickal--they'r...more
We met some spectacular persons along the trip. This series gave a positive look at Witches and others. A good l...more
I always have problems getting started with Shirley Damsgaard's books. But once I make it past the first couple of chapters, I fall in love with the characters again (and again). I am sucked in by the storyline and I have a very hard time putting the book down.
The Seventh Witch is the latest in the Ophelia and Abby tells and one of my favorites. Not only do we get to spend more time with Aunt Dot, but we finally meet the frigthenin...more
Why weren't the previous books this fun? This series has always been somewhere between 'it was an ok read' and 'I liked this'. I am not tempted to go and rate the previous six books higher because some of them were just ok and some I liked. This one is the best of all. It is the last book in the series and I am kind of sorry it ends. It just became interesting.
Now when I think about it, this was Ophelia's journey to accept her gifts and to make peace with some of the people in her life.
Even though i haven't read the first 6 books of the series and i had to piece together the info i received in this book to get a good image of the others before it, I really enjoyed it.
It was a plot shrouded in mystery about a woman named Ophelia(psychic from a gifted family of s...more
Ophelia senses there is alot of saddness and mystery around Abby while she is at the old Homestead. A old fued between family witches has cropped up and Ophelia crosses Sharon one of the mountain witches. Sharon practices black arts and everyone on the mountain is afraid of her powers and crossing her.
Ophelia thinks she is a fake and sets out to prove it.
Several yards from the homest...more
Exceptionally fast moving page-turner. If I could have had the time, it would have been read in one sitting.
I love the relationship that Abby and Ophelia have, loving, firm, friendly, nurturing. Abby is able to gently lead Ophelia in strengthening her gifts as well as accept...more
This one has to be my favorite one thus far. All the characters are growing and going in uncomfertable places with their lives. Great book, well written and highly recommend.
Ophelia's family is colorful and eccentric and utterly perfect. Great Aunt Mary's glares almost burned a hole in the page. LOL. Ophelia's growth from the last book was obvious in this one and I loved the fact that she stood up for herself and the strength of her powers.
I love the attitudes of all the characters (I swear I know them!) and how they all come together to make a great story. This book is awesome from beginning to end. Who said being a librarian was boring? HAH!!
The only thing I don't like about this book is that it is pretty short and before I knew it I was done...aww, man.
I love this series. I sure hope Mrs. Damsgaard writes more.
There are still some continuity issues for me - the author just throws in answers to issues without any linkage to how the answer is derived.
