A Secret History of Witches reveals an ancient and dangerous power that's been handed down from mother to daughter since time began. After Grandmere Ursule gives her life to save her tribe, her scrying stone falls silent. Even with Ursule's magic lost, her family keeps the Old Faith, practicing the spells and rites that have been handed from mother to daughter for generations. Until one day, Ursule's young granddaughter steps into the circle, and magic flows anew. From early 19th century Brittany to London during the Second World War, four generations of women fight the battles of their time, deciding how far they are willing to go to protect their family, their heritage, and ultimately, all of our futures.

Reviews

"A Secret History of Witches examines the bonds between mothers and daughters, and the power of hidden magic to quietly save the world, particularly as the world braces for another global war."--Brit + Co "Poignant tale of mothers and daughters struggling to survive and preserve their craft in a hostile world. A tale full of love and betrayal, happiness and terror, it will keep you reading long into the night."-- Melissa Lenhardt, author of Sawbones "Morgan's transportive words will sweep you away to a time of magic, love, and loss. Simply hold on and enjoy this mesmerizing ride."-- Tish Thawer, award-winning author of The Witches of BlackBrook series "Epic relay race that gripped me from start to finish. Fiercely uncompromising and unsentimentally poignant, A Secret History of Witches will transfix you."--Michael Bishop "A grand family saga rich with historical detail and threaded through with magic. You won't want this book to end."--Sharon Shinn, author of Archangel "A moving multigenerational saga about strong women who work behind the scenes to save the world from tyranny. A deeply satisfying and magical work of great craft."--Carol Goodman, author of The Lake of Dead Languages p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} "Epic relay race that gripped me from start to finish. Fiercely uncompromising and unsentimentally poignant, A Secret History of Witches will transfix you."--Michael Bishop "I loved it. A beautiful generational tale, reminiscent of Practical Magic if it had been set in various time periods, but much more expansive in scope. Grounded and real, painful and hopeful at the same time."--Laure Eve, author of The Graces "At once sprawling and intimate, A Secret History of Witches deftly captures the greatest magic of all: the love between mothers and daughters."--Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Immortals "A Secret History of Witches is an epic family saga that speaks to the strength of all women and the difference that one true heart can make, not only for herself, but for the world."--Marci Jefferson, author of Girl on the Golden Coin "A Secret History of Witches is an epic family saga that speaks to the strength of all women and the difference that one true heart can make, not only for herself, but for the world."--Marci Jefferson, author of Girl on the Golden Coin "A grand family saga rich with historical detail and threaded through with magic. Like the women at the heart of the story, the book gains its power from the unfolding of generations, each one building on the wisdom and the mistakes of the past."--Sharon Shinn -A grand family saga rich with historical detail and threaded through with magic.
