“Vivid Welsh historical details, haunting surroundings, and Gothic magical elements both enchant and perplex the
reader as Tilda and Dylan strive to unravel the mysteries of the past before the present danger overwhelms them. Readers who savor richly detailed paranormal fiction or have enjoyed Brackston's previous novels will want to give this one a try.” ―Library Journal
“There's a whiff of Harry Potter in the witchy conflict...Love of landscape and lyrical writing lend charm, but it's Brackston's full-blooded storytelling that will hook the reader.” ―Kirkus Review on The Winter Witch
“A riveting tale of sorcery and time travel.” ―Marie Claire on The Witch's Daughter
“...compelling and beautiful...a book to be savored. I look forward to reading more from this wonderful writer who always manages to take my breath away.” ―SF Site on Lamp Black, Wolf Grey
“The Witch's Daughter is a must read for anyone who loves magic set in the real world, who craves a well-written novel with historical elements along with romance and witchcraft tied into a tension-filled plot and vivid imagery, and, of course, who seeks an escape from their own lives if only for a moment.” ―Huffington Post on The Witch's Daughter

As her hallucinations increase, so does her ability to cause electrical disturbances. Brackston does a fine job of voicing Tilda's discomfort with such phenomenon. The reader is allowed to get inside the woman's head and feel her pain and eventually her slow reemergence in a world where the sun shines again.
A party of archaeologists, a diver, a dog and a professor help Tilda realize who and what she is and what she must do to save herself and those around her.
Brackston alternate chapters feature either the voice of Tilda or the voice of Seren. This technique works well for those who enjoy a glimpse of the past from that character's perspective even if the time period or any other information isn't all that clear. The mood is one of melancholy--as to be expected. I would like Brackston to revisit this character in another book that depicts her in the summertime when the days are longer and the sun shines brightly as the continuance of her story from a seasonal basis. We all know Winter is Coming . . . and Tilda does her best to live through it by creating some beautiful pieces of art as well as regrouping her entire life; now let's see what happens when Summer is Here.
Bottom line? "The Silver Witch" is a typical Paula Brackston offering for those who enjoy a little kindling of magic within those who have no prior clue that such things exist. Recommended for fans of the author or for those who must read about witches.
