ACHUKA Book of the Day 19 Feb 2021
A dangerous spell cast over an unsuspecting village. An enchanted painting locked in a hidden room. A desperate race against time to break the spell before it’s too late… It should have been a fresh start for the Widdershins. Finally free from the misty gloom of Crowstone and beginning a new life. But all is not as it seems in their postcard-pretty village. Their neighbours are acting strangely, and why do they flinch at the mere mention of magic?
The Widdershins sisters have their own secret: a set of enchanted nesting dolls with the power to render their user invisible. The sisters must use their wits – and their magic – if they’re to break the dark hold over the village, and save one of their own .
The author writes of this title on her blog: “This book was a struggle to write during the lockdown! My son Jack was only at school for about eight weeks over the entire year, and my deadlines kept getting extended, and extended and I was missing them all. The book finally got finished and went to print in December, which is crazily late in the publishing world, but the fantastic team at Simon & Schuster somehow made it happen. As for the story itself, I think it’s possibly my favourite of the three and the witchiest one yet.”
