When they reach a lonely and derelict cabin, they are transported in time to 1837, when a witch hunter is on the prowl. A Native American woman appears in the cabin, and this women, Aquene, has the sight. Will they be able to escape the witch hunter, or will they join forces and find a way to banish him to hell?
Molly is friendly and not used to having to fight for what she holds dear. She’s been told all her life that her strength will come, but she’s never needed it before this. Molly was a light character, whose strength really rested in her joy of baking and her ability to bring together people of good character. It sounds a little old-fashioned, but there were elements of that in the book.
Aquene, the Native American love interest, was a much more interesting character and had more depth than the main character. I would have liked to have heard more from her. Winnie was the entertainment in the book, and she and Angus carried much of the early part of the book. They were a great addition to the story, and helped to ground the book before it descended into peril for the main character.
The antagonist, Matthew, was suitably spooky and creepy. He was well written and the parts with him were an interesting counterpoint to the rest of the book. I don’t always like hearing from the bad guy in these sorts of books, as I find them less interesting, but I think this book needed him for balance
This was a fairly light and enjoyable book about witches, hunters, and time travel.
Advanced reading copy provided by NetGalley for an honest review.
When a sudden storm hits, the trio took shelter in a secluded old cabin. Molly noticed a loose floorboard in the cabin, and upon lifting it, discovered a leather-bound book which she recognized as a grimoire, a book witches write in to pass knowledge on to others. As soon as Molly picked the book up, something like an earthquake spun the cabin and it's inhabitants around and they ended up in the eighteen hundreds.
The world the trio landed in was being terrorized by a witch hunter who felt he was told by God to rid the earth of witches, which he was doing in a most brutal way. This world is also home to Aquene, a native American who has been seeing Molly in her dreams. .Molly, Winnie, Angus and Aquene are well developed and very likeable characters. Angus, with his Irish background, provides a strong male character to balance out Molly and Winnie. Author Wohl has given readers a rich read with a very satisfying ending.
Walking Through Shadows by Sheri Lewis Wohl is a love story that defies time. Molly is a hereditary witch who has put all of her time and energy into her baking business, only to have her shop go up in smoke. When her friends, Angus and Winnie, invite her to go on a hike to take her mind off her loss, Molly reluctantly agrees. Aquene is a Native American woman who leaves her people to journey where the Great Spirit takes her. To save her people, Aqueene must help a strange woman from the future defeat a deadly witch hunter. But the boundaries of time may prove to be insurmountable to Aqueene and Molly’s blossoming love.
Walking Through Shadows had an intriguing storyline that caught my attention and kept me hooked through the story. I love a good time travel story, and the magic and romance enhanced the plot, which made this a fantastic read. The historical Native American setting was lovely, and one I don’t see enough in romance novels. I did wish there had been a bit more emphasis on the romance. However, the love between Aqueene and Molly was still sweet and enjoyable, and the rest of the plot made this story a great read. All of the characters were good, but I found myself loving to hate the witch hunter. He was so well written that I wanted to jump into the book and go after him! Walking Through Shadows is a fantastic read, and I definitely recommend reading it.
Molly Williams is a witch with a destiny. She's been resisting it her whole life but when she unexpectedly finds herself back in the 1800s in the company of a beautiful Native American woman she can't deny it any longer. Along with her friends Winnie and Angus she is transported back to a time when her powers are needed. She has the fight of her life against the witch- finder and his plans to destroy her.
This was an enjoyable story of finding love and purpose when you least expect it. I liked Aquene a lot as she was written as such an open and caring character. The descriptions of the unspoilt West were lovely and I could sympathise with Aquene as to what her people were about to lose. The author managed to convey a sense of fear and menace as the group fought to stay one step ahead of the true evil, which was not witchcraft, but the witchfinder himself.
I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
