Like a series of TV episodes, each book seems to be designed to take about an hour to read - at a relatively quick pace. The `Going Home' episode kicks off the show beautifully, allowing you to get a feel for the main character, Alexandria, but also tempting you with appearances by others - who may or may not have pivotal roles in later episodes.
At the start, the story holds a fairy-tale, warm, magical quality, and the description is divine - almost tactile. It feels like Alexandria is living in a home in touch with nature and wrapped in love, but we learn quickly that she has to leave this comfortable, loving environment behind to travel back to her roots. That's because the people whose home she shares, Mr and Mrs Barnaby, are only her guardians. Alexandria is a young witch, who actually comes from a long line of witches, but she has been living with the Barnabys, a childless couple, ever since her parents were killed. However, as she hits a milestone, she has to leave this life behind and travel to the place that was her birth family's home, so she can take ownership of her inheritance before it is taken from her or the home is bulldozed. But on the coach journey there, sinister happenings start to occur and the story turns effortlessly from a sweet tale to one where the plot is clearly thickening. She meets a young man called Andrew, who she befriends, but his past is full of sorrow.Read more ›
I was so caught up in the story that before I knew it I was at the end of the book! Thankfully I had book 2 to move onto straight away.
Patti Roberts is an amazing author, she also writes the Paradox Series. That one is a deeper more involved series, thoroughly enjoyable, and this Witchwood Estate series is equally as good, but a lighter read which is great for people who may not have time to read a longer novel. The descriptive writing sets each scene beautifully and couple that with the images of the characters you can find on Patti's website, you really can put yourself right there in the story with the characters.
This is the first episode about a young witch attempting to save her ancestral home, while discovering who she is and her place in the world.
Some good character development and a taste of what may come. It has an atmospheric touch with added mystery about the past, present and future.
Worth a look.
