Review: The Silver Witch

The Silver Witch The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book by Paula Brackston I have the pleasure to read. The Silver Witch takes place in Wales, UK and tells the story of two women in two different time periods. Seren is a shaman in the court of Prince Brynach, who lived around 910 AD near an ancient lake. Tilda is a young widow and ceramic artist who moves to a secluded Welsh cottage on the banks of the same ancient lake, but in modern times. There is a deep connection between the two women and the lake. The story is bewitching and has wonderful Welsh historical details. There is a nice unexpected twist at the end. Great read!

Review: Black Rabbit Hall

Black Rabbit Hall Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A rollercoaster of emotions: from joy to sadness to frustration to elation. Black Rabbit Hall is a book full of surprises and an incessant journey that spans over 30 years. This is the story of four children broken by the loss of their beloved mother and how they learn to cope with grief, change and love. Eve Chase gifts us with a beautifully written story which has the right amount of intrigue and carries you, chapters after chapters, to a remarkable ending. Enjoyable from the first to the last page.
