Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) This was posted to a list of which I am a member. Any help appreciated.

NOTE: it is not by Anne Rice.

"Several years ago, during a move, a couple boxes of books were lost. Through the years, I've managed to replace most of the lost books, but one has remained elusive. I don't recall the title or the author; otherwise, I'd be able to track it down myself.

It was a book about a family of witches, and had a Anne Rice-lite feel to it. It was not written by a well-known author, at least I had never heard of him/her before. The book was probably published in the early 90s -- although possibly during a broader time frame, sometime between the late-80s and the mid-90s.

The book chronicled the exploits of a family of witches from the days of Salem to modern times, each generation detailed in vignettes. My memories of it beyond that are hazy, but one section involved an Irish witch named Cassie and there was an Italian witch involved as well.

I've exhausted my searching skills through Google, Yahoo and Amazon. I know this is a longshot, but I thought perhaps someone here would recognize the book from my description. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated."

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) Hello April Ann: I am still waiting to hear back from the person who posted this. I have also referred them to this thread, but, so far, no response.

Kate (katespofford) | 255 comments This sort of reminds me of a short R.L. Stine YA series published in the 90s, with titles like The Betrayal, The Secret, The Burning. Each book took one or two generations from this family involved in witchcraft in Colonial New England and how it came to create "Fear Street" - the family's last name was different spellings of Fear (like Feare or something). I remember it being a trilogy but then I think more were published.

Obviously this person was not talking about Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy by Anne Rice?
