Book Description

'A Girl Between' begins the four-part "War of the Witches" series, a paranormal tale of witchcraft, reincarnation and the ever raging battle between good and evil.

In Part 1, the life of 16 year old Tess changes drastically when her abusive step-uncle dies under mysterious circumstances. Forced to move to her grandmother’s in the old town of Woodley, Tess soon feels at home – perhaps a bit too soon. Woodley evokes strange feelings of familiarity, as if she’s lived there before. As she begins making friends, Tess also encounters a number of enemies who wish to do her harm. Tess finds herself at the confluence of forces she’s at a loss to explain, while coming to realize she possesses extraordinary powers.

The original single volume of 'A Girl Between' is re-released in two separate books: Part1 under the same title, and Part 2 under the new title 'A Girl Beyond'. Readers of the original single volume should note that select chapters have been updated and new chapters added to enhance the story. The "War of the Witches" series will continue with two sequels planned for release later in 2014 and in 2015.

About the Author

Marjorie Weismantel is a high school teacher and mother of three who has enjoyed and valued her many experiences with young adults. While an avid reader of all kinds of books, her favorite genre has been the supernatural, and so, writing a book for young people with a paranormal theme comes naturally to her. She particularly likes to write about things we might contemplate at odd hours of the night but believe will never actually happen; where the outcomes are slightly askew and don’t fit neatly into a box. Her objective is to create an alternate world that readers desire to visit and stay for a while. Marjorie enjoys traveling around the U.S. in a motor home, viewing the beauty of nature and our national parks, and visiting the many wonderful historical sites. When not on the road, she resides in Connecticut with her husband, dog, and two cats.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Girl Between - Excellent Novel for Young Adults September 17, 2013
By Di
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Luminars, diaboles, auras, witches and rats.! A Girl Between, by Marjorie Weismantel, features all of the above in this novel for young adults which will surely cast a spell on them, and keep them reading to the exciting conclusion. The author has obviously done her homework with meticulous research into the persecution of witches and gypsies through the ages. She has an excellent ear for believable dialogue among high school students. Tess, the main character, learns of her powers when she moves to Connecticut with her aunt and cousins. She comes in conflict with "bad witches" at her high school, and in a series of bizarre incidents involving lightning and rats, she is able to overcome her adversaries. Or course, there is young love involved. After all, this is high school! Will and Ian are the two young men, vying for Tess's attention. I highly recommend this novel for young adults, and their parents, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent YA paranormal story July 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is well written and well edited, only a few small typos that did not detract from the story. The material is well researched and if some artistic license was taken with the individual personalities, it doesn't lessen the impact of the cleverly disguised history lesson presented.

The story is about a teenager, Tess, who lives with her Aunt, her Aunt's husband and her two cousins. Her father left when she was three and her mother died when she was eight. The uncle is abusive and the book opens with her sneaking into the garage to loosen the lug nuts on his tire so he'll have an accident in his vintage auto on the way to work and hopefully die. She can't do it, though, so she and her cousins are shocked when he actually has exactly that happen the next day. They are all relieved to be free of his tyranny, but can't stay where they are without his income. Aunt Amy moves them all back to Connecticut, to her mother's house. As they're travelling, Tess sees a vision of the last train car getting into an accident, so she hustles her family off that car, but goes back for her cat. She's caught in the wreck with a metal pin into her brain through her forehead. After she wakes up, she sees auras around people and has more visions and other weird things that she can't explain.

The story follows her as she remembers that she was a witch and lived in this same town in the 1600's'. Some people help her learn her powers. There are also bad witches who are out to get her, however they can. It's hard enough to be a teenager but now you add on paranormal powers and lethal enemies? And some kind of apocalyptic battle....Wait just a minute now, all Tess really wanted was to fit in at her new school, and maybe a boyfriend. She ends up getting a lot more than she bargained for.

Heat factor mild.

A Girl between is most wonderful story
I have read about in the speculations of witchcraft and reincarnation. The character Tess kept me engaged with her regression of her past lives and discovery of her powers. A must read for Wiccan fans.
I highly recommend this book. It kept me glued to the pages until it was finished and had me wanting more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not live up to the potential March 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was expecting a very different ending. Nothing seemed to get resolved. A lot of stuff happens, lots of people die, drama, property damage, doom and then... limbo. Return to status quo

Sorry, I can't give a decent review without some spoilers.

There is a battle of good vs evil that has been going on for all of history. People are reincarnated over and over again with magical abilities. Once you choose the side of evil, you are evil forever. But are you? A young man who was evil in his past lives has romantic feelings for the leader of the good witches. Will he be allowed to switch sides? Is there a way to increase the number of good witches in the world?

There are to many questions left hanging. It feels like the deadline for the book came up before the author knew where she wanted it to go.

Very poorly written, repetitive, I truly thought after I began to read it, that it was written by a teenager.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting and Fast Moving Story July 14, 2013
By Calvin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very easy book to read, fast moving with twists and turns. I quickly felt intimately connected with Tess as she tried to discover who she was. As a reader, I became aware of who Tess was a little before Tess understood who she was, and that was really exciting (to see how Tess began to understand). The flashbacks to earlier historical times were like little exciting stories onto themselves, but still had tremendous bearing on the main story line. I had no idea how the story would finish until the ending occurred - WOW!!! I hope the author continues to write more stories because she does a really fantastic job.

More About the Author

Marjorie Weismantel's vocation as a high school teacher has given her a unique perspective into the life and times of the modern teenager. In this capacity she has developed a high regard for real-life teens, watching them struggle with the pressures of growing up, yearning for the freedom and excitement that always seems to be just beyond their reach. Her decision to write "A Girl Between" was to enable the natural desire of young people to escape from their lives for periods of time, as she herself frequently did as a young person.

Marjorie's inspiration doesn't come from that which can be seen. Rather, it comes from what can be imagined. She enjoys writing about things that we contemplate at odd hours of the night, but believe will never actually happen; where the outcomes don't fit neatly into a box, but are always slightly askew. She likes creating an alternate world that readers desire to visit and stay for a while.

Marjorie's world includes her husband, a dog and two cats. Her three children have grown up and flown the coup. A favorite pastime is traveling around the U.S. in an RV, viewing the beauty of the national parks, and investigating many of the wonderful historical sites. She is currently writing her second novel. She now resides in South Windsor, CT.
