Where Is MY Time Stepper?

Where does The Return of the Witch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very high! Probably number 3.

What other book might you compare The Return of the Witch to and why?

Outlander. Bess has to overcome the same problem of having too much knowledge of future medicine and the lack of resources. Just like Claire the fact that she knows about germs gets her into major trouble. Unlike Claire, she punctually is a witch.

What about Marisa Calin’s performance did you like?

Love her accent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved how Tegan went off to find herself. She was so young and impressionable in the first novel and in this one we get to see her purposely grow into a force to be reckoned with. It was really beautiful.

Any additional comments?

Thank you Paula for finishing this story. I really felt myself missing Bess and Tegan.
