Product Description

Product Description

"The secluded backwoods of beautiful Tennessee is the perfect setting for this mesmerizing contemporary Gothic tale. There is a chilling sense of foreboding that permeates the sheer essence of this story." - Night Owl Paranormal

Once a power reveals itself...there is no turning back.

Through a chance encounter at a biodiversity conference in Chicago, Dr. Ethan Broughton is invited to investigate a potent medicinal plant and a rumor of curative miracles on Porringer Hill in East Tennessee. What he finds is an isolated community of disturbing superstition centered on an alluring young albino woman, Ana Lagori, who is possessed of a mysterious ability to heal all wounds.

Ethan believes Ana may be more a proficient actress than skilled folk healer.

He couldn't be more dangerously wrong.

*The Honey Witch previously published as The Evangeline Heresy

More About the Author

My writing is inspired by the nuance of the natural world, and the thresholds contained within that sphere of shifting light and shadow. I am passionate about creating stories that draw the reader's imagination to a place where the impossible seems almost...possible.

I have a love for vintage clothing design and restoration, Renaissance method sun/moon herb gardening, fossil hunting and collecting rare Victorian era books.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautifuly descriptive supernatural mystery 26 July 2012
By Jeannie Zelos TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
The Evangeline Heresy: A Tale of Shadows and Forest Witchery. Thayer Berlin
I was supplied with this book by[...]. This review is, as always, independent of whether I've bought it or received for free. Integrity is important to me, and the views I've given are personal and honestly held.
This book is a combination of the paranormal, a mystery, a sort of horror without the fast paced gore and guts so often prevalent, and an unusual romance. Its beautifully written and very descriptive and it was easy to picture the characters living on the mountainside and the beautiful scenery and plant life surrounding it. I liked the little details such as the coffee and doughnut runs (made fresh each day...) that breathed life into the characters and made me feel part of the scene. Its a gently unfolding story, very unhurried which sets the scene for the pace life is lived on the mountainside. From the start we wonder about just who Ana Lagori, the albino healer who knows so much about plants and healing and who the mountain people revere and yet in some ways fear. We see Dr. Ethan Broughton brought to the mountain by curiosity from an incident in his families past and gradually rather than him seeking answers from Ana he becomes seduced into the hypnotic way of life on the mountain. Slowly it turns from him seeking answers into something else entirely and a mystery starts to unfold. Did he come to seek answers or was he drawn there by other forces? Is the slightly batty Reverent Fitch to be feared, ignored or listened to? The mysteries keep piling up slowly and all are wonderfully descriptive and evocative of another time - its easy once lulled in to believe in the unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, hypnotic tale. 2 Feb 2012
By skycat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It is hypnotic, enthralling, magical and spell binding. A unique and engrossing tale, written in an almost old fashioned style. This is good writing, where the author uses the English language beautifully to evoke mystery, romance and the supernatural in a mainly narrative piece of work. Colours, textures and emotions are brought richly to life in this tale. A big thumbs up from me, and I'm not easily pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping mystery 2 Jan 2012
By Amy mOo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A mysterious and gripping story, couldn't put it down. Totally unique to anything I've read before, exactly what I needed. Was totally enthralled by Ana, was left wanting to know more about her motivations. Certainly worth £2. Didn't want it to end...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 6 Jun 2012
By Jason Stephens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Evangeline Heresy is something rare in novels that deal with the supernatural these days in that it is wholly unique. For starters, it is a quiet novel. One that allows you to get lost in the atmosphere of the narrative while at the same time it propels you to its conclusion.

Unfortunately though that is all I can say because to say more would open up this review to the potential of spoiling the ending. While one doesn't realize it until the end, the story is very tightly plotted and executed with such precision that its almost impossible to discuss what makes this novel great from the events that occur throughout it.

(I would also like to add that I read this novel on my Nook.)

Sadly for me its not the sort of romance I like - I'm one of those escapist saps who wants a happy ever after, even if it takes several books to get there and this isn't one :( It is however an incredibly well written story for those who love supernatural mysteries and a bit of "soft" horror. I don't mean the sort of gory, slashing, sword wielding, limbs flying horror that has you turning away squeamishly but the sort of mystery that gives you shivers thinking it could happen because its set in a scene so believable - I'm actually more frightened by that sort.
The book is a good length at 316kb for £2.03 on kindle. Its far as I could see almost error free, far too many self published authors neglect this part and its something that as a reader I find very off-putting.
Stars: 4 stars, if it was just my personal taste issue I'd probably put it at three but I can see how well done this novel is even though the romantic plot-line isn't one to appeal to me, and I can see those who love this kind of mystery will enjoy this book. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Real or fantasy? 28 May 2012
By ABCme - Published on Amazon.com

Wow! couldn't put this one down. Modern day biologist meets herbal healer, science meets fantasy. Some scenes are so vivid I could see myself painting them. Wonderful story, very much recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 26 Jan 2012
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book interested me initially because of the supernatural element combined with herbal/southern mountain elements. Turned out to be very different than I expected (though I can't really say exactly what I expected). Not my usual type of book, more emotion, less action but the storyline held my interest. Even while I was thinking 'do something!' I couldn't put it down. There were times I would shrug mentally and think "enough". Five minutes later I'd have to pick it up again.

The writing is often lyrical, with elegant language and a feel of timelessness. Many scenes were dreamlike, introspective and many things, including the animals, were not quite what they seemed.

I found the rating difficult. Though it really isn't my 'type' of book at all it fascinated me. While I can't say that I will be likely to re-read it, I truly could not put it down and I gave it a 4-star rating for that reason.

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Imaginative 22 Feb 2012
By G. Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story, itself, was really well done. It deftly contrasts our modern day science-dominated belief system with a more Earth Mother or Druidic view. The vocabulary is really refreshing and will challenge even the most educated reader. However, a proofreader is really needed. There are several typographical errors that look like the kind one gets with OCR software when going from hardcopy to digital. For example, there are at least 2 occurrences of "arid" where "and" is obviously called for, and "he" and "be" are substituted for each other.

My only other complaint is that several British phrases have been inadvertently left in when the book is set in the U.S., specifically in Tennessee. There are several places where it looks like the author has not personally seen the mountain cultures of Tennessee. On the other hand, some of the presentations of the people of that area are done well.

Overall, I think it is a highly intelligent treatment of the kind of ghost story or supernatural tale that is very popular right now.
