The Winter Witch

Author(s): Paula Brackston

Young Adult

'Wild places make wild people, but only some have magic blood. There are those with frozen hearts, whose souls know only winter. They would drive me from my home. It will not do. Really, it will not.' In her small Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana. She has not spoken a word out loud since she was a child, and her silence - as well as the magic she can't quite control - makes her an oddity, a magnet for rumour, mystery ...and resentment. Concerned for Morgana's safety, her mother arranges for Morgana to marry Cai Jenkins, the widower from the far hills who knows nothing of the nasty things folk say about her daughter. Cai takes his new wife home to his farmstead. As Morgana falls in love with the rugged mountainous landscape, her husband slowly wins her heart - and it seems that she has finally found a harmony her soul had never dared dream of. But it isn't long before a dark force makes itself known - a force which will stop at nothing to turn everyone against her. Determined to defend her home, her love, and herself from all comers, Morgana must learn to harness her power ...or risk losing everything.
Let The Winter Witch sweep you back in time, to a wuthering place where magic is as nimble as a heart is strong. Praise for The Witch's Daughter: "A riveting tale of sorcery and time travel". (Marie Claire).
