Publisher's Summary

Two women. A history of witchcraft. And a deep-rooted female power that sings across the centuries.

Once there was a young woman from a well-to-do New England family who never quite fit with the drawing rooms and parlors of her kin.

Called instead to the tangled woods and wild cliffs surrounding her family’s estate, Margaret Harlowe grew both stranger and more beautiful as she cultivated her uncanny power. Soon, whispers of “witch” dogged her footsteps, and Margaret’s power began to wind itself with the tendrils of something darker.

One hundred and fifty years later, Augusta Podos takes a dream job at Harlowe House, the historic home of a wealthy New England family that has been turned into a small museum in Tynemouth, Massachusetts. When Augusta stumbles across an oblique reference to a daughter of the Harlowes who has nearly been expunged from the historical record, the mystery is too intriguing to ignore.

But as she digs deeper, something sinister unfurls from its sleep, a dark power that binds one woman to the other across lines of blood and time. If Augusta can’t resist its allure, everything she knows and loves - including her very life - could be lost forever.

Eghh.

I liked the storyline but it seemed lacking somehow. for instance the character of Chris was supposed to be some horrible abusive boyfriend and I just didn't get that out of him. Lazy maybe but not abusive ... and the ending of Margaret and Jack was abrupt and inconclusive in my opinion.

Could Not Put This Down

I found this book through a Twitter giveaway the author did, and I am so happy that I did!
This book - from the prologue - sent my linguistic nerd heart ablaze, and didn’t disappoint. Every time I had to pause the book (work day ended, drive was finished, etc), I couldn’t wait to start listening again!
The characters were so beautifully written, and were both relatable, and engaging.
Listening to the path of Margaret, and Augusta made you feel like you were there, in their respective timelines.

Calling it now: one of my favorite books of the year! ♥️


My only other comment is that it looks like Margaret’s chapters are misspelled. :)
