Four lives, one woman, a star-crossed love . . .
In 1895, sixteen-year-old Juliet begins a passionate, doomed romance with a married artist.
In 1932, aspiring actress Nora escapes New York for the bright lights of Hollywood and a new chance at love.
In 1970, Californian musician Sandra's secret love affair threatens to tear her band apart.
And in 2012, Helen is starting to remember the tragic details of lives that never belonged to her.
Bound to her lover in 1895, and trapped by his side ever since, Helen has lived through multiple lifetimes, under different names, never escaping her tragic endings. Only this time, she might finally have the power to break the cycle . . .
Absorbing, magical and hard to put down, A Witch in Time is a heartbreakingly beautiful story about a death-defying love, a time trapping curse and the power of destiny. Perfect for fans of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue and A Secret History of Witches.
