Joan MacKimmie is on her way to Paris to take up her vocation as a nun. Yet her decision is less a matter of faith than fear, for Joan is plagued by mysterious voices that speak of the future, and by visions that mark those about to die. The sanctuary of the nunnery promises respite from these unwanted visitations...or so she prays. Her chaperone is Michael Murray, a young widower who, though he still mourns the death of his wife, finds himself powerfully drawn to his charge.

Love The Outlander series, Davina Porter has a way that draws you in deeper into the story, before you know it you forget that she is the only one reading. Because honestly when you read a book is there only one voice or are there many.

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

A rare story that cuts to your heart, with the weave of history in a way only a true lover of history would see it. It reminds you how much history still walks with us everyday, not only in books.

What other book might you compare A Discovery of Witches to and why?

None.

What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed her voice, it is very musical.
