Book Synopsis



From The New York Times bestselling author Paula Brackston (The Witch's Daughter) comes an enchanting tale of love and magic that weaves a modern day heroine together with the ancient Celtic past

A year after her husband's sudden death, ceramic artist Tilda Fordwells finally moves into the secluded Welsh cottage that was to be their new home. She hopes that the tranquil surroundings will help ease her grief, and lessen her disturbing visions of Mat's death. Instead, the lake in the valley below her cottage seems to spark something dormant in her - a sensitivity, and a power of some sort. Animals are drawn to her, electricity shorts out when she's near, and strangest of all, she sees a new vision; a boatful of ancient people approaching her across the water.

On this same lake in Celtic times lived Seren, a witch and shaman. She was respected but feared, kept separate from the community for her strange looks. When a vision came to her of the Prince amid a nest of vipers she warned of betrayal from one of his own. Prince Brynach both loved and revered her, but could not believe someone close to him wished him harm, even as the danger grew.

In her own time, Tilda's grief begins to fade beside her newfound powers and a fresh love. When she explores the lake's ancient magic and her own she discovers Seren, the woman in her vision of the boat. Their two lives strangely mirror each other's, suggesting a strong connection between the women. As Tilda comes under threat from a dark power, one reminiscent of Seren's prophecy, she must rely on Seren and ancient magic if death and disaster are not to shatter her life once more.

Paula Brackston does it once again with The Silver Witch, crafting an enchanting tale as timeless as it is engrossing.



Review Quotes



"Vivid Welsh historical details, haunting surroundings, and Gothic magical elements both enchant and perplex the reader as Tilda and Dylan strive to unravel the mysteries of the past before the present danger overwhelms them. Readers who savor richly detailed paranormal fiction or have enjoyed Brackston's previous novels will want to give this one a try." --Library Journal on The Silver Witch

"Paula Brackston weaves a lyrical and lovely tale...As ever Brackston's prose is sharp, precise, and a pleasure to encounter...Her world of witches and warriors, of the supernatural and divine, is one that will captivate many an unwary reader."--San Francisco Book Review

"The Witch's Daughter is a must read for anyone who loves magic set in the real world, who craves a well-written novel with historical elements along with romance and witchcraft tied into a tension-filled plot and vivid imagery, and, of course, who seeks an escape from their own lives if only for a moment." --Huffington Post on The Witch's Daughter

"...compelling and beautiful...a book to be savored. I look forward to reading more from this wonderful writer who always manages to take my breath away." --SF Site on Lamp Black, Wolf Grey
