The Age of Witches

The Age of Witches

A MAGICAL TALE OF FAMILY, AMBITION AND LOVE, SET IN GILDED AGE NEW YORK AND LONDON

In 1692, Bridget Bishop was hanged as a witch. Two hundred years later, her legacy lives on in the scions of two very different lines: one dedicated to using their powers to heal and help women in need; the other, determined to grasp power for themselves.

This clash will play out in the fate of Annis, a young woman in Gilded Age New York who finds herself a pawn in the family struggle for supremacy. She’ll need to claim her own power to save herself – and resist succumbing to the darkness that threatens to overcome them all.

Reviews

[A] robust tale of matriarchal magic in a lushly depicted Gilded Age New York . . . Readers will root for these powerful women as they struggle to overcome the social limitations of their time, whether through magic or force of personality
Publishers Weekly
Morgan's beautifully conjured tale of three women, social mores, and the sanctity of self-determination is thoroughly enthralling
Booklist
A must-read for those who like magic, love, and a little bit of feel-good feminism in their historical fiction
Library Journal
This is a book about witches, told from their perspective. As such, it's a lyrically and lovely written triumph about independent, unusual women
