Witch Child 21 Great Bloomsbury Reads for the 21st Century Synopsis

After Mary sees her grandmother accused of witchcraft and hung for the crime, she is hurried to safety by an unknown woman who gives her tools to keep a record of her days - paper and ink. Then Mary is taken to a boat in Plymouth and from there sails to the New World where she hopes to make a new life among the pilgrims. But old superstitions die hard and soon Mary finds that she will have to make important choices to ensure her survival. Vividly evoked, this is a powerful literary achievement by Celia Rees that is utterly engrossing from start to finish.
