A magical Pendleford prequel novella from the best-selling author of The Language of Spells, that introduces the world to Iris Harper - the original Harper witch.
Iris Harper has lived in Pendleford for decades. The local witch is mistrusted by the townsfolk, but that doesn't stop some coming to her begging for potions, spells and quick-fixes.
As time has marched on suddenly Iris is aware that her days are beginning to fade. Her sumptuous garden is turning against her, the sweet scent of rot potent and now a young girl has come begging for a solution at her door.
Yet, the problem she brings causes Iris to remember a man from long ago - the man she loved, the man she could never trust...

Prequel Novella from Language of Spells

I have not read the Language of Spells but I'm looking forward to reading it soon. This was a short audiobook Novella that was light and easy to follow. The story kept me interested until the conclusion.

The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.

If you like supernatural stories with a touch of magic you should give this book a try. It was laid back and a good introduction to this author's writing style. She doesn't spend a lot of time with descriptions of places and people. This book was straight forward and I found it engaging. If you have read her Language of Spells, you will probably enjoy learning about Iris.

Short and Sweet

This was a short and sweet story. A little magic but a lot of funny moments and truth bearing. The witch was really a herbalist but also was a member of a family with different talents. Her's was to discern the right thing to give or do for people. The narrator was good and made the story come alive. The story plot was interesting and I am glad that the HEA was included. Becca needed a break. John hung in there until she realized that she could tell him how she felt. I got this ARC via audiobook boom.
