it was amazing
Read from May 10 to 13, 2011

Based on the true story of the Pendle witches and their trials in 1612 England, the story is divided between Bess Southerns and her granddaughter Alizon. It's an emotional read that had me... well, emotionally exhausted by the end. I didn't cry, but I came pretty damn close.

I initially picked this book up because I was excited about Mary Sharratt releasing another book. I enjoyed her other historical novel The Vanishing Point, and hoped (at the time that I first finished TVP) she'd do another book of the same type. Lo and behold, my wish came true.

I knew almost nothing about the Pendle witches prior to reading this book, but the story, combined with the author's notes Sharratt provides at the end, have made me want to read more into this fascinating tale.

I will definitely read this book again.
