So you know how Salem had a bunch of trials for witches in the 1600s? Well, Daughters of Witching Hill by Mary Sharratt has nothing to do with Salem. It takes place in England, in this place called Pendle Forest. The story is first told in first person through the eyes of Bess Southerns, this old woman who is super poor, like she begs for money and eats bark. Anyways, she gets visited by this familiar and finds out she can do magic and bless things. And whoo-hoo she begins to eat better food, such as oats. Eventually, her granddaughter, Alizon Device takes over narration.
