it was amazing

This book was AMAZING. The audiobook was beautifully narrated, the writing style is one of the most unique and enjoyable I have encountered in a long time, and the story is relatively short but impactful.

The story follows Patience Gideon, who is a witch in a time where it is not advisable to let anybody know you are one. She and the other women in this book are excellently complex characters, neither afraid of their gentle or fierce sides, they are of all ages, and support each other in a world that does anything but.

I don't even know where to start raving about this book. Please just do yourself the favour and pick it up. And if anyone knows about more books set in this world, or can recommend more by the author, please let me know!

Two quotes I marked (it's a bit difficult with audio):
"Females are seldom remembered once they've gone beneath the earth, indeed, many go unremarked while they are still upon it."

"I worship none, and what woman with a brain in her head obeys anyone, let alone a failure?"
