If you could sum up The Silver Witch in three words, what would they be?
Entertaining, interesting, well written
What other book might you compare The Silver Witch to and why?
Style of Kate Morton, not as deep. Themes of Mary Stewart, intrigue of ?.. I don't know but it was intriguing. I listened to all in 2 segments. Not a super long book but well paced.
What about Marisa Calin’s performance did you like?
Extremely well narrated. I always say how much I dislike the English voice. I suppose this is Welsh but I really enjoyed her narration of all characters. I will look for her again.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
This was an unexpected really good book. The pieces over the centuries had to come together, and this story was very satisfying. When you listen to book that captures you and then you immediately want to share it with a friend.

Like the Stevie Nicks song "Rhiannon," this is the story of a Welsh witch. (Actually, two Welsh witches, one long dead and one her modern-day descendant.) The point of view switches between the two women in alternating chapters, so that the story from a thousand years ago seems just as real—and the dangers just as urgent—as the one from today. There's also an undercurrent to the story about what it means to be different, both now and in the time of the ancient Celts, and how being different can be a source of strength. This is the first book of Paula Brackston's that I have read, and now I am sure that I will read the others.
