Daughters of the Witching Hill is a beautifully written and well-researched story - a fictional account of real-life events during the Pendle witch hunt. Mary Sharratt weaves a spell-binding story, rich in detail and utterly engrossing. Despite its morbid subject matter, I could not put this book down. Sharratt explores the decisions and motivations that lead up to the witch hunt in an easily readable voice.

Daughters of the Witching Hill offers the reader a deeply emotional chronicle of a group of people struggling to endure in a time of terrible persecution. It is a wonderful novel of historical fiction, with realistic characters and rich historical details. The story is truly heartbreaking, especially when you consider the real events it is based upon. Daughters of the Witching Hill is a dense and vivid read, and one that anyone interested in good historical fiction should pick up.
