REVIEW: THE PENDLE CURSE by Catherine Cavendish

Catherine Cavendish remains one of those rare authors who consistently manage the first-person narrative wisely and well. In this story, a young widow, bereaved suddenly and unexpectedly by an aneurysm felling her husband (no notice, and not anyone to blame) finds herself inextricably and inexplicably drawn into a brutal historical occurrence, whose gory strands and obsessed spirits extend into her present with damaging consequences.

Format: Paperback
The Pendle Curse is jam-packed with scares, surprises, and a wide-ranging, time-spanning plot. It's almost two books in one: there's a historical witch tale set during the 1600's and a modern day ghost story, both very effective. At times, Ms. Cavendish's moody writing reminded me of Shirley Jackson's classical ghost tale, The Haunting of Hill House, with her ability to raise the hackles on the back of your neck. And there's a whopper of a shocker at the end of chapter two that I won't spoil for you here (part of the titular curse). But I like having surprises up-front. Now, I have to admit I did have a bit of a hard time keeping up with what witch did what to who in the past storyline, but then again, I can be dense. And it's heavy on romance, not my usual genre. But I'm nitpicking. The Pendle Curse is a terrific ghost and witch story that is recommended. I look forward to more of Ms. Cavendish's tales of the macabre.

The Pendle Witches were accused by a child in England, condemned and hung, in a case that preceded and informed the more famous Salem witch trials in the United States. Now their history breathes again through Catherin Cavendish’s novel, the Pendle Curse.

An enjoyable blend of well-researched and grittily authentic history, traditional horror with a female protagonist’s slow road into danger, and psychological mystery-romance, The Pendle Curse is peopled with convincing characters and set in a very believable, authentic England. There’s a cool sense of quietly mounting mystery as interconnections between past and present grow stronger. Soon the reader is eagerly trying to guess what the future might hold. Is Laura a witch? Is she possessed? Is she crazy? Or do those Pendle witches of the past hold powers still today?

Dialog is satisfyingly real and English, shifting with the times as the story switches smoothly from past to present. And the novel offers an intriguingly different version of the familiar tale, filling in horrifying details of ancient jails while modern nightmares creep onto the horizon. The result is a powerful blend of old magic, well-researched history, and enjoyable story-telling. It would make a wonderful movie, and it makes a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review. I’m only sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.

Disclaimer: while I recently met Catherine online because we both have the same publisher, I swear that my review is 100% truthful. I was honestly thrilled by how much I loved her book.

The Pendle Curse surprised me. I thought everything that had to be said about witches was said a long time ago, but Cavendish proved me wrong. This book grabbed me from its opening pages, and its hold on me only got stronger the more I read.

I could see many influences in this novel, from Rosemary's Baby to Stephen King's Bag of Bones, but The Pendle Curse is clearly its own tale. When Laura's husband Rich dies suddenly, her life falls apart. She loses interest in everything, until she starts dreaming of a mysterious, lonely place that calls to her. When she learns she has been dreaming of Pendle Hill, which has a tragic history of witchcraft trials and torture, she decides she must visit the site in person and investigate her ties to it.

The novel flips between two POVs--Laura's in the present, and that of the ill-fated Device family in the 1600s. At first the historical chapters were the ones to grab me, but soon I was eager to know what would happen to Laura as well.

The Pendle Curse is a gripping, suspenseful book that I found extremely difficult to put down. It's the first novel I've read of Catherine's, but it definitely won't be the last.

One thing you can always say about Catherine Cavendish's books is that those twists she throws in are pretty wicked. In more ways than one.

This time around, we're given a love that crosses boundaries, witches who are...actually, I don't really know how to categorize them. Sure, they did some not-so-great things, but what was done to them was pretty awful, too. Like, really awful. It was the lies that got to me. That they were offered hope with one hand only to have their jailers snatch it away with the other is terrible. Sure, the witches weren't innocent of some of the crimes they committed but... NO LIKE!

Meanwhile, Laura isn't much better off in the present. As she gets tangled up in the events of the past, she doesn't know who to trust or where the truth begins to fade into lies. Honestly, there were times *I* wasn't sure what was true. Her situation was terrible and sad before she fell into the shenanigans at Pendle Hill. Then it just blew up.

Dark, dangerous, and more than a little twisted. Just the way I like it!
