I choose this book to take with me to our cabin. I was looking for something to listen to on a quiet night on the deck or a walk in the woods. It was great for that as the book takes place in the summer/fall and lent itself to long walks. I also liked the music between chapters. In my opinion it added to the atmosphere. The reader was also, I thought, perfect for the book.
I enjoyed this book and hearing about the history surrounding the Salem Witch trials. This was an easy book to follow and so was a good book to carry along while I did other things.
Starts off interestingly enough and some of the historical flash backs are okay, but the modern day "love story" and the villian Advisor made this book extremely difficult to finish. I had to force myself to do it. Any wonder the author was working on her PhD when she wrote this and made the Faculty Advisor the "bad guy".
I had to keep listening. I love historical fiction and this has a great story line with and interesting historic event. The story line was predictable, but fun anyway.
Great potential for this book. Definitely a good read but could have done much more with one section of the book. I will not tell you which as to not set expectation. Had that not been the case I would have given this book a 4.5 rating instead of the 3.5
I never go jogging (or walking!) without my Audible book!
The reader is excellent and the story engrossing. A lot of true history from the Salem Witch Trials makes this book a must listen for history (and witchcraft!) enthusiasts. Well researched...
I loved the way Katherine Howe told this story with modern and historical story lines that merge into a very facinating book. I look forward to reading more of her work.
The title was interesting but the book didn't deliver. Plotting weak, unbelievable. Knew immediately who the villain was. I was very disappointed.
