Summary

Discover the story of Ursule Orchière in this captivating tale of family, witchcraft and love, perfect for fans of Practical Magic, The Witch's Daughter and A Discovery of Witches.

Brittany, 1741: there hasn't been a witch born in the Orchière clan for generations. According the elders, that line is dead, leaving the clan vulnerable to persecution. Ursule Orchière has been raised on stories of the great witches of the past. But the only magic she knows are the false spells her mother weaves over the women who visit their fortune-telling tent.

All of that changes when Ursule comes of age and a spark of power flares to life. Thrilled to be chosen, she has no idea how magic will twist and shape her future. Guided by the whispers of her ancestors and an ancient grimoire, Ursule is destined to walk the same path as the great witches of old. But danger hovers over her. Will she be able to escape the bloodlust of the mob or the flames of the pyre?

Utterly Captivating.

Having read and adored A Secret History of Witches last week, I had to make sure this was the follow up. Louisa Morgan has such a wonderful way of drawing you into the lives and the loves of all her characters and this has to be my absolute favourite. I don’t like to give spoilers but I highly recommend that you read these books in the order in which they were published. As it’s book is a prequel to A Secret History of Witches, the story of Ursulè becomes far more enchanting, heart wrenching and beloved. This book in particular will remain with me always as one of the best I have ever read/listened to. Polly Lee lends her many voices as she narrates this beautifully. Her accents and passion in the dramatic scenes which build to a heart thumping crescendo are absolutely wonderful and totally make this audio book utterly magical. I simply cannot wait for more works from Louisa more Polly Lee collaborations for Audible.

Beautiful and well written

If you are not aware of the traditional festivals of the turning year, you might want to Google the Celtic wheal of the year before reading this beautiful story. Very life like in the way it is written.

A brilliant listen

I loved hearing about Ursule's life! I was sad that it had to end. I especially loved hearing about the magic and its use in helping others...
