There’s nothing to trace Anna back to her old life. Nothing to link her to the “incident”. At least that what she thinks… until the rumours start up again. As time begins to run out on her secrets, Anna finds herself drawn to Maggie, a local girl accused of witchcraft centuries before. A girl whose story parallels with her own…
For me, this was really a book of two parts. We had Anna’s own “incident” which caused devastation in her life. We then also had Maggie’s story. Personally, I felt that Anna’s story was the more interesting, and the story I felt more invested in. Maggie’s story started well, and I could see why this story was linked into the book but I thought it became silly after a while, to be honest. It wasn’t so much the storyline, it was more the dreams which I wasn’t a fan of. I felt it gave the book too much of a fantasy element, which didn’t fit with the actual story. I probably would have given it a higher rating had the dreams not been in it. Anna’s story was hard to read, I’m not going to lie. To see her suffer and all the names she was called was not nice. But, it was an important story to hear. I would definitely recommend it for anyone, not just young people, because it is so important to see what Anna went through at the hands of others, and the torment she was subjected to. The book is also very easy to fly through, I started it Saturday morning and finished it Sunday night.
