(This is the UK version/title for this book, which was published in the US as THE MINISTER'S DAUGHTER. I've listed this version because of the Michael Frost cover.)

Another book featuring haunting cover art by Curse photographer Michael Frost, Julie Hearn’s début novel is set against the backdrop of witch hunts and the English Civil War. Three young women find themselves caught up in a web of magic, witchcraft, and violence, with potentially tragic consequences. Watch for the appearance of English faerie folk, and learn the meaning of this book’s original UK title: The Merrybegot.

Why: for the collision between folk magic and history
