This book needed perseverance on my part to get into the story and the "feel" of the book. It is a book that needs the reader to be open minded about the supernatural otherwise you could find yourself not having any sympathy with the main characters, but luckily they are so well and gently portrayed that I don't think their being witches would be a problem to most people!
The story shows the best and worst of human nature, the way that even people who should know better can exploit those they care about, the way fanaticism pervades in all walks of life but also how people can care about each other in the face of perversity. It also tries to show how women , even in the 1880s, could be strong in time when they were supposed to be shadows of men.
All in all, not one of the most memorable books I've ever listened to or read, but quite pleasant if you persevere.

After trying to listen to two previous audio books and failing miserably, I found this delightful book. The narrator was excellent and read the book in a way that kept you intrigued to hear more. I highly recommend it.

Good story, has some inconsistencies that make you go back to see if you missed something. overall good story
This was intolerably badly read. The narrator sounds so robotic. Ruined what is a fantastic book.
