Treachery and intrigue provide a sombre background for the story of spirited Maggie and her determination to survive the cruel persecution of the church. After her granny is falsely accused of being a witch, Maggie has to flee and to live on her wits. But Maggie is never far from trouble and all too often it looks as if she won’t survive. A rich historical background sets the scene for this moving and dramatic story with its thought-provoking themes. To see more titles by the author click here.

Synopsis

The Witching Hour by Elizabeth Laird

When fourteen-year-old Maggie's grandmother is accused of witchcraft, Maggie has to run for her life. With English soldiers on the march, nowhere is safe - certainly not Ladymuir, where her uncle is determined to defy the king. And wherever Maggie goes, disaster follows.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
