Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I am not a lover of novellas unless there a number of them linked together to create a broader tale. I did surprisingly enjoy this one - in fact, I loved it!
It's not so much the story that hooked me but the narrative. The author has a wonderful ability to incorporate descriptive text into her work. Having said that though, the story itself was an interesting twist on the usual witch story, thus making it intriguing. Out of the many books I've read these past few days, this one stands out - read it in a hot, steamy bath that's not meant to be too long and you'll have a perfect escape.
