Publisher's Summary

A sweeping historical saga that traces five generations of fiercely powerful mothers and daughters - witches whose magical inheritance is both a dangerous threat and an extraordinary gift.

Brittany, 1821. After Grand-mere Ursule gives her life to save her family, their magic seems to die with her.

Even so, the Orchires fight to keep the old ways alive, practicing half-remembered spells and arcane rites in hopes of a revival. And when their youngest daughter comes of age, magic flows anew. The lineage continues, though new generations struggle not only to master their power, but also to keep it hidden.

But when World War II looms on the horizon, magic is needed more urgently than ever - not for simple potions or visions, but to change the entire course of history.

What the Critics Say

"At once sprawling and intimate, A Secret History of Witches deftly captures the greatest magic of all: the love between mothers and daughters." (Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Immortals)

"Epic relay race that gripped me from start to finish. Fiercely uncompromising and unsentimentally poignant, A Secret History of Witches will transfix you." (Michael Bishop)

    "Enchanting!!! "

    I was enthralled and captivated by the story of the Oschiere witches! To see their line evolve and their enemies transform...it was mesmerizing. And the performance was fantastic!! Beautiful French accent and great voices for each character. I highly recommend this book for a good long listen.
