5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel to the bestselling "Witch Child". Mary's story continues... the story of an exiled seventeenth-century witch., 24 April 2008
This review is from: Sorceress (Paperback)
If you've already enjoyed "Witch Child", then you'll love this, the sequel. It's really compelling - I challenge you to put this book down mid-story!

In "Sorceress" the story of Mary Newbury continues. "Witch Child" ended with Mary fleeing Beulah (USA), accused of practising witchcraft in the small settlement there. This story alternatates between Mary's Story and the story of another young girl, Agnes, in the present day. Agnes is a Mohawk at college in Boston, and hears about the appeal of the researcher, Alison Ellman, to find information about Mary from the seventeenth century. Alison had already found the 'Mary Papers' and written the first part of Mary's story (which makes up "Witch Child") but now she's reached a dead end and cannot find any more information... until she hears from Agnes.

As Mary's story unravels you can't help but feel empathy. Her life, like any had its highs and lows, but she seems to have had more than her fair share of sadness to contend with. A moving, convincing story, compelling read, and I can highly recommend it for ages 11+.
