In early 1800's in Brittany, the Orchiere women led by Grandmere Ursule keep the old faith alive but always in secret. Persecuted by the church for witchcraft, they are hunted down and killed. Each generation of these women produce one daughter who will inherit the skill, power and the crystal tailsman but always it must be kept a secret. Some use the power for love, some for safety and others for less noble means. The book follows five generations of these women in language rich with historically vibrant stories. The storytelling of these women, both brave and devious, is magical.
Historical fantasy at its best.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
