    So much potential; but fell flat
    This novel had all the potential for a good "witchy" book. Unfortunately, for me it fell flat.

    The two main characters (sisters) were unlikeable and whiny. It was somewhat clever how opposite they were and how they sort of changed rolls toward the end. However, it was told to us. As readers, that was unnecessary...we could figure that out on our own.

    I would have liked a more accurate historical account. Of course we know witches were burned, but what was really happening in that place during that time?

    The settings were accurate and described quite beautifully. I especially enjoyed the feeling of the birchwood where the sisters lived.

    The witchy elements were there. I appreciated the spells/charms, the moon and nature, the legacy and lineage of the womanhood/witchery, and the sisterhood bond.

    What irritated me most was the overkill of "the witch's itch". Too redundant!
