Fantastic story, I didn't want it to end. I loved the characters and the accents given to them by the narrator. I especially loved Corrag's view on nature in all her winter glory. The gory bits were realistic without being overdone. I was brought up near Inveraray (among many friendly Campbells and McDonalds) and this gave me a special interest in the story. I learned a lot about Scottish history from this book.
This was a fascinating story and so well read! The reader was just amazing at the different accents and made the whole experience so completely immersive it was as if you were being talked to by the different characters.
A dark story which I imagine reflects life at that time and very sympathetically told.
An unforgetable read, this book transports you to another time and another place. I sat on buses feeling the wind of the Scottish Highlands and the cold stone walls of the cell Corrag is in, sharing her hopes and fears.
A great look at a key event in history and the life of those people who were called 'witch'.
