“Two women. A history of witchcraft. And a deep-rooted female power that sings across centuries”-need I really say more than that to get your attention?! A Lullaby for Witches was absolutely engrossing, and the characters of Augusta and Margaret was so intriguing. As a fan of history myself, the present and past story lines were such a fantastic part of this reading experience!
Augusta Podas is stuck in a rut. She gives the same tour at the town jail in Salem, she is with the same boyfriend who she feels is with her out of a sense of comfort and she is craving a change. When her dream job opens at Harlowe House, this old historic home of a well to do New England family that is now a museum, she jumps at the opportunity and applies. After getting the position she finds herself working in a house full of history and getting to be a part of telling that story. Once Augusta begins, she notices that part of this history is the sense that there is more to the story of a woman in a portrait whom little is known about. When Augusta starts getting visions of the past and little nudges towards information, she finds herself stumbling upon something more sinister than expected. Something that may result in losing everything she loves forever. There is more to Margaret then the reader knows, and she wants her story told.
This is my first book by author Hester Fox and I absolutely look forward to reading more by her. This story was perfect to read in the dead of Winter as it really set the spooky atmosphere I crave when reading books about witches. I highly recommend picking up this book and diving into the story! Happy reading!
