About the Author:

Paula Brackston is the author of a travel book, The Dragon's Trail. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University in the UK, and her autobiographical writing has been published in several anthologies. In 2006 she was shortlisted in the Creme de la Crime Search for new writers. She lives halfway up a Brecon Beacon with her partner and their two children.

Review:

"By Chapter Four I was cheering 'Yes! We're going back to the seventeenth century.' Dark events trigger a fascinating chase through the centuries that will appeal to fantasy and historical readers alike. Elizabeth and Tegan are back in a heart-warming tale of witchery, female power and tantalising time travel." - Martine Bailey, author of A Taste for Nightshades

"When it comes to deftly mingling different fiction genres, Paula Brackston is something of a magician herself. The Return of the Witch, the author’s sequel to her first book, is a spellbinding story comprised of equal measures of fantasy, time-travel, and history spiced up with a generous dash of danger and suspense." ―ReadertoReader.com


Praise for The Witch's Daughter:

"A riveting tale of sorcery and time travel."-Marie Claire

"Well-crafted characters in an absorbing plot and an altogether delicious blend of historical fiction and fantasy." --Booklist

"This pleasantly romantic historical fantasy debut flips lightly between the past experiences of ageless witch Elizabeth Anne Hawksmith and her present-day life in Matravers, England... Bess's adventures are fascinating." --Publishers Weekly

"Stretching her tale over several centuries, British-based Brackston brings energy as well as commercial savvy to her saga of innocence and the dark arts." --Kirkus

The Witch's Daughter is a must read for anyone who loves magic set in the real world, who craves a well-written novel with historical elements along with romance and witchcraft tied into a tension-filled plot and vivid imagery, and, of course, who seeks an escape from their own lives if only for a moment.” ―Huffington Post
