The Silver Witch

Cover: 'The Silver Witch'

Staff Review: "The Silver Witch" by Paula Brackston


I couldn't help but immediately get sucked into the setting and characters in this novel. Set in Wales, a country I've always loved since visiting it in person, this beautiful landscape has many secrets. Tilda, a woman who just tragically lost her husband after they bought a lakeside cottage, feels an immediate affinity for the mysterious place. She vows to discover her own history and link to the alluring land, while the locals uncover a long hidden burial along the shore that somehow seems to connected to Tilda and the strange things happening around her. Part present day mystery and romance, part historical fiction, this many-layered novel will not disappoint for fantasy and mystery fans.

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction, historical fiction
