Though you will definitely hate (or at least want to slap) every one of these characters at some point ... Moriarty wows once again with her newest book. .. I recommend this to anyone who likes thrillers with different angles (touches of humor and sass).

I was so excited for this book, I started too fast. Mistake. This book is meant to be savored (with a nice Chianti?) The cinematic imagery Jones creates stays with you long after you turn off the lights.

This book really won me over with it's brilliant writing and entrancing story... With rich language, multi-generational family history, borderline poetic (and yet not intimidatng poetic), this book is for fans Pachinko, Homegoing, Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, or any work of Jesmyn Ward's.

Published: Catapult - August 10th, 2021

Can you describe a book about 1600s English witch trails as "fun"? After reading The Manningtree Witches, I'll say yes! These women are different. There isn't the old "Woe is me!" tone to this novel. These women know what's happening and they're mad, and yet they also know there isn't anything they can do. The character of Rebecca West is a smart realist with sincere emotions who never gives up.

This book has it all! A setting in the Scottish Highlands that is mesmerizing with it's nature scenes. The story is steeped with the wonder of reintroducing wolves into the wild within the context of a farming community not all in favor of this effort. The relationship of two sisters with an unusual upbringing and their lovers creates an element of mystique woven into this natural setting creating a complex mystery with lyrical writing. It is impossible not to put this book down until the very end and then you feel so sad to leave this world so masterfully created by McConachy.
