Coven of one

Filed under: literature — by ichabodisitchy @ 9:30 pm

Another strong female lead– huzzah! I loved Kate Bousfield‘s (aka Minx) debut novel– the story of a woman’s journey of self-discovery.

Dorcas is a young witch who dreams of joining the coven at Masterbridge, capital of the pagan North. But when she finishes her training she is sent to Pendartha– a small fishing village in the heathen South.

At first it seems she has simply been summoned to treat the aches and pains of a hard-working community. But there is more to Pendartha than meets the eye and when Dorcas hears the tales of death and misfortune that have plagued the village for the last generation, she realises she has a bigger job to do here than healing physical ills.

It is a physical and spiritual test that forces Dorcas to search her innermost soul to find out who and what she is. It is a story of good and evil, prejudice and superstition and a story about love and magic. Wonderful.
