The charm of spending the Christmas holidays in South Wales, with its crumbling castles and ancient myths, seems the perfect distraction from the nightmares that have plagued literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw since the loss of her baby five years ago. Instead she meets an emotionally fragile young widow who's convinced that Lyn's recurring dreams have drawn her to Castle Farm for an important purpose - and she's running out of time.

The only problem I have with Susanna Kearsley is the amount of time I have to wait for another story! I've loved every single one and can't wait for the next. It's gotten so that I don't even read the "about" section and just flat out purchase it.

Amazing story teller, she makes you want to step inside every single story.

In the spring of 1628, the Witchfinder of Wessex finds himself a true Witch. As Bess Hawksmith watches her mother swing from the Hanging Tree she knows that only one man can save her from the same fate at the hands of the panicked mob: the Warlock Gideon Masters, and his Book of Shadows. Secluded at his cottage in the woods, Gideon instructs Bess in the Craft, awakening formidable powers she didn’t know she had and making her immortal. She couldn't have foreseen that even now, centuries later, he would be hunting her across time, determined to claim payment for saving her life.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm about 1/2 way through this story right now. It sounded great when I read about it, but listening to it is pretty boring; it's at the very least a slow start. I'm hoping it picks up, otherwise I would really like to find out how to return it. :/

Has The Witch's Daughter turned you off from other books in this genre?

I love this genre, but this story didn't live up to my expectations.
