I can't say that I loved this book but I also don't hate it enough to write a bad review for it. This was a dark story and I knew that going in by the Author's little note in the beginning but I never imagined that it would be as dark as it was. I also felt that there were too many people to keep track of at the same time to fully get into this story and I might have helped if I have read some of her other books to understand what this series is really about. Overall, If you are into books that have that dark side and witch lore, then this is the book for you!
Thank You to Suzanne Palmieri for writing a story that you can just tell that you put your heart and soul into it!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from BookSparks : FRC 2016!
In 1890, Nan who is the Amore family matriarch was banished from her home and sent off to America with her new baby in tow. Nan searches for a job after her arrival in America and finds herself at the estate of the wildly eccentric Green family. There she finds a couple of new companions who welcome her and share in the magic she had only been told stories of. But after some horrific events at the home it would become known as “The Witch House.”
The Witch House of Persimmon Point is one of those reads that is just so unique that I feel that people will either love it or hate it. The family history involved in this book is not one anyone would be proud of in the slightest. There is a lot of disturbing activities that go on throughout the book that it definitely will not be for every reader.
The story is told switching the POV from Byrd who had just arrived at the family home and has some things begin happening which leads to changing to the past to explain what had gone on with family members then. There's some pretty dark and disturbing things in the read but also with excellent writing it becomes a strangely compelling read learning about these unique characters.
Overall, definitely not for every reader, a dark and disturbing read covering generations of one family making choices that would shock some and repeating terrible patterns in their lives. A unique story though if looking for something a bit darker and different than normal.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
While the cover of this book looks like it might be for kids or teens, do not let that trick you. Right in the beginning of this book there's a note by the author that makes it pretty clear this story would be dark, but I guess my rosey colored glasses had no idea how disturbing and dark it could be. The Witch House of Persimmon Point is a family saga with plenty of secrets and a haunted home of ancestors.
I'm used to reading books filled with love and laughter - this was definitely not one of those books. It was dark and sometimes hard to read. The things the women in this story did (and what they had done to them) were things I couldn't even imagine. Despite that fact, I continued turning the pages because I wanted to know about this family and I wanted to know if their cursed lives would ever end. This is a story of generations of women who made bad choices and their lives and decisions are influenced by their special abilities, as well as the evil in their "witch house". As their stories unfolded, I felt terrible for each of these women and kept wondering if each generation would be the one to break free from the house's history.
Like I said before, I'm ordinarily not a fan of this type of book and the cover did lure me, but I won't lie - I did have issue with trying to keep everyone straight. I felt like there should be a family tree chart in the back cover to help readers. If you are familiar with Ms. Palmieri and her other witch books, I'm betting you know her style and you'll like this one. Me - I'll stick to the touchy, feely love stories!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publishers and BookSparks as part of the Fall Reading Challenge 2016 (#FRC2016) in exchange for this post, which is my honest review and unbiased opinion.
