Stuck in Books. Every blogger participating in this hop is featuring a book that was an incredible or amazing read! That's an easy one for me because I love the books in Paula Brackston's "witch" series, and I have a beautiful hardcover copy of The Silver Witch to send to one lucky winner!
This amazing tale tells the story of two women who lived centuries apart, but whose lives become increasingly connected as the story unfolds. Tilda lives in modern times and mourns the unexpected death of her new husband. Living alone in the lakeside cottage they had bought together, she begins to experience strange phenomena. The electricity shorts out wherever she is. She sees a vision of ancient people rowing in a lake. Archaeologists are unearthing a grave that Tilda senses should be left undisturbed. And Tilda’s dog digs up an ancient piece of jewelry that has a very strange effect on Tilda whenever she wears it.
Then we also learn of Seren, a “seer” or witch who advised the prince of the lakeside people during Celtic times. Her visions predict his doom while he declares his love for Seren despite his politically arranged marriage. It is a dangerous time of warring kingdoms, and Seren’s influential position with the king is perilous. As Tilda uncovers more details about Seren, the woman she saw in the boat, she realizes that her life is interwoven with Seren’s in many mysterious ways.
The Silver Witch kept me under its spell from the start and ended with a heart-stopping encounter that lingered in my consciousness long after the book was put down. The lake was filled with magic, but so was the pen that recorded this haunting story. Don’t miss out on this mesmerizing read.
