My first post at this english version of the blog... and it has a special taste!

I created a new session at Amor, Mistério e Sangue that will talk about the books I receive from mail. It won´t matter if they come specially for reviews or if I buy them - they´ll have their space here.

Today I received a special book! It came directly from Mary Sharratt, (author that already has a book released here in Brasil by Suma de Letras Publisher - Ponto de Fuga).

Mary is really sweet and sent me her newest book that will still be released in USA: "Daughters of the Witching Hill"

"Bess Southerns, an impoverished widow living in Pendle Forest, is haunted by visions and gains a reputation as a cunning woman. Drawing on the Catholic folk magic of her youth, Bess heals the sick and foretells the future. As she ages, she instructs her granddaughter, Alizon, in her craft, as well as her best friend, who ultimately turns to dark magic.

When a peddler suffers a stroke after exchanging harsh words with Alizon, a local magistrate, eager to make his name as a witch finder, plays neighbors and family members against one another until suspicion and paranoia reach frenzied heights.

Sharratt interweaves well-researched historical details of the 1612 Pendle witch-hunt with a beautifully imagined story of strong women, family, and betrayal. Daughters of the Witching Hill is a powerful novel of intrigue and revelation."

It must be amazing! And I reeeeeally love stories about witches!

Wait for the review!!!
