"Take this as a warning: if you are not able or willing to control yourself, it will not only be you who suffers the consequences but those around you, as well."
New Oldbury, 1821
In the wake of a scandal, the Montrose family and their three daughters—Catherine, Lydia, and Emeline—flee Boston for their new country home, Willow Hall. The estate seems sleepy and idyllic. But a subtle menace creeps into the atmosphere, remnants of a dark history that call to Lydia, and to the youngest, Emeline.
All three daughters will be irrevocably changed by what follows, but none more than Lydia, who must draw on a power she never knew she possessed if she wants to protect those she loves. For Willow Hall’s secrets will rise, in the end…
It's a well written novel & does really well at evoking the uneasy atmosphere in Willow Hall & in particular the tension between Lydia & Catherine (what a cow she could be!)
But for a book with the tagline, "Years after the Salem witch trials one witch remains. She just doesn't know it....yet" it was a bit lacking in witchiness! But that's just my thoughts as I would have expected & certainly liked a bit more about the history of witchcraft in Lydia's family at least. That little gripe aside I still found it a fascinating read.
