The Lovereading4Kids comment
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.
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.
