  • Elizabeth Lee's debut novel is timely in its depiction of hysteria and persecution, and beautifully evokes a historical period poised between dark ignorance and long-overdue enlightenment.

  • A dark, bewitching and captivating read that had my heart in my mouth by the ending. A Romeo & Juliet love story framed by witchcraft, magic, fear and intolerance. I loved it

  • With a painfully unexpected ending, this is a story about loneliness, connection and female rage that fans of intensely atmospheric historical fiction will love.

  • A haunting tale with a brutal twist.

  • Witches and the dread they inspired are captured here with chilling deftness

    Woman and Home
  • An impressive debut . . . anyone who roots for the underdog will fall for Sarah . . . beautifully relevant.

  • Elizabeth Lee builds up a powerful atmosphere of menace, with danger lurking around every corner, until the mounting tension builds to boiling point.

    Charlotte Heathcote, Daily Express
  • This powerful story of forbidden love takes place during a time of persecution after the Pendle witch trials of 1612. At its heart is a wild young woman searching for what life can offer ... A tense and atmospheric ride.

    Daily Mail
  • Beautiful, tense (at points breathless!) historical fiction with meticulously researched description. I loved it.

    Kate Sawyer, author of THE STRANDING
  • Wonderfully original . . . devastating . . . and fabulously atmospheric too.

    Elodie Harper, author of THE WOLF DEN
