SYNOPSIS

Barrie Anne Blythe and her aunt Charlotte have always known that the other residents of their small coastal community find them peculiar — two women living alone on the outskirts of town. It is the price of concealing their strange and dangerous family secret.

But two events threaten to upend their lives forever. The first is the arrival of a mysterious abandoned baby with a hint of power like their own. The second is the sudden reappearance of Barrie Anne’s long-lost husband — who is not quite the man she thought she married.

Together, Barrie Anne and Charlotte must decide how far they are willing to go to protect themselves — and the child they think of as their own — from suspicious neighbors, the government, and even their own family…

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

Are you a fan of historical fiction? WWII era? Witches? Did you say yes? Then you’re going to love this one!

I’m not a big historical fiction reader but when you throw some paranormal elements in there then I’m hooked! Louisa Morgan has such a great way of weaving both magica and history together you come out with a sigh of happiness after reading her words. I really love the way Morgan writes. It’s everything I want from historical fiction, truly.

The attention to detail in this book had me visualizing the story so specifically I want to jump into the book. I loved that we were introduced to different creatures and water magic. It was beautiful. This book focused more on a slower movement with its descriptions and foreshadowing. While I enjoyed this read I still love A Secret History of Witches a bit more but I’m super excited for her 3rd instalment coming soon!
