My Overall Thoughts:
I really loved Witch Child by Celia Rees. Which is a journal by Mary a young girl living in the 1600's. During the era of fearing of witchcraft. She witnesses the death of her beloved grandmother who is thought to have practiced witchcraft. Her mother comes and as her sent to America. Where Mary thought the past would be in left in England. Sadly however it fold her to America.
When reading this I felt I was Mary. I loved it. You should check this out. I will be checking out more books from this author. I'll be trying to get the second novel which is called Sorceress.
Hope you enjoyed my review,
