Life-affirming, thought-provoking, heart-warming, it's one of those books which―if you happen to read it exactly when you need to―will heal your wounds as you turn the pages." ―Catriona McPherson, Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Bruce Alexander-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series and The Day She Died

I LOVE a Book about witches when it's written well. I also love a good book about sisters. For me this had it all. It's grabbed me from the first line and I was engrossed til the Authors note.
My Kindle copy is highlighted in quite a few passages that were brilliant at explaining the inner dialogue that goes on when a secret testers and grows into an all consuming and life altering thorn. With sprinkles of magic and women you will love, I highly recommend reading this.
It's reminiscent of Alice Hoffman's Practical Magic but in sTands alone as its own fantastic work of fiction. So sad that's it's over.
There doesn't seem to be an upcoming sequel to this group but that is OK with me. I like to see an author try new story lines! I look forward to then next novel!
