Teaser Tuesday: Daughters of the Witching Hill

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My teaser this week is from Daughters of the Witching Hill, which: brings history to life in a vivid and wrenching account of a family sustained by love as they try to survive the hysteria of a witch-hunt. From page 3:

Daughters of the Witching Hill     "Whores and witches," he rails, shrill enough to set the crows to flight. "Get out of my ground."
     Slashes of air hit my face as he brandishes his whip, seeking to strike fear into us, but it's his terror I taste as I let go of Alizon's guiding hand and step forward, firm and square on my rag-bundled feet. We've only come to claim what is ours by right.

  7. The characters for "Witching Hill" sound fierce and now I'm trying to remember the last book I read of this type. Maybe "Holy Fools" by Joanne Harris? Thanks for stopping by Summit Musings this morning.

  18. Thank you!
    and crap! I've had a few people having trouble with comments and then some who don't seem to have trouble...now part of it may be because I have to approve them, which I've never rejected one yet..that's mainly to weed out spam. I see that I have a comment waiting so maybe that's you!
    I just started the book yesterday. I'm on page 40-ish (reading on breaks and lunch break at work haha!)
