Description

The year is 1880. Two hundred years after the trials in Salem, witches Adelaide Thom and Eleanor St Clair finally feel safe and have opened a tea shop in Manhattan, specialising in cures, palmistry and potions.

When an enchanting young woman called Beatrice joins the witches as an apprentice, she soon proves indispensable, but her new life is marred by strange occurrences. She sees things no one else can see. She hears voices no one else can hear. Objects appear out of thin air, as if gifts from the dead. Has she been touched by magic, or is she simply losing her mind?

Amidst the witches' tug-of-war over how best to nurture her gifts, Beatrice disappears - but was it by choice or by force? In the desperate search, the witches are confronted by spectres from their own pasts. In a time when women were corseted, confined and committed for merely speaking their minds, were any of them really safe?

Distracting narration

I quite enjoyed the story. Some plot holes don't get filled, though.

I would recommend reading this instead of listening to it. How I wish narrators did not feel compelled to create goofy voices for each character!! Her reading is competent, but oh! Those cartoon voices....

A nice amount of feminism

Great story! I love witch tales and this book didn't disappoint! I found the notes of women power and feminism just enough to not overpower the story line. Good characters and good performance!

Narrator sounds like a robot

This was intolerably badly read. The narrator sounds so robotic. Ruined what is a fantastic book.
