In her small Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana. She has never spoken, and her silence as well as the magic she can’t quite control make her a mystery.

I would first like to thank author, Paula Brackston for sending me her book! Paula will be one of my featured author’s of the month, so keep an eye out!!
I will admit, this book was slow starting for me. But as the story went on, I did start to enjoy the tale! The Winter Witch tells the tale of Morgana, a girl who hasn’t spoken for years, being married off to Cai, a widower who needs a wife because his job requires he have one. You have a supernatural flair as Morgana is a witch (though the magic not something she can control so easily), and a fairly somber tone throughout the entire book as Morgana discovers enemies and circles around Cai warily.
It is a well written historical fiction novel set in the 19th century Welsh countryside. It is a tale as much about witches and witchcraft as it is about love and the ability to live a happy life being one’s self.
I think this would be a great book directed to young adult readers! It is off the beaten path of the typical ‘witch’ stories they are used to reading!
