This story starts in the present. A witch moves into a new home and attracts the attention of a local girl. Slowly she befriends the young girl and tells her about her past. She's lived a long time and the story steps back in time to when she was a young girl and came across magic. Another time period visited, was during killings of Jack of the Ripper in London. Again during the war too. These back stories of her life in different time periods are interesting. I prefer the story of her young days to the other time periods. The ending left a little rushed too.

Daisy I also liked the changing time periods. I liked how she incorporated Jack the Ripper events into her story line. I thought it was clever.
