LoveReading View on Witch Hill

A brilliant, dark and compelling read that cleverly interweaves the story of a 17th century witch into the life of a boy whose world is forever haunted by fire, for his family home was destroyed by it as was his sister.  Sensational writing will ensure it’s almost a one sitting read.


Witch Hill Synopsis

Something terrifying is happening to Jamie in Crownhill, the village where he's been sent to get over a family tragedy. Something to do with an evil old witch who gets into his dreams, determined to do him harm, and a frightened girl, the victim of a long-ago witch hunt, whose presence lingers on.
