The Great Witch of Brittany (Paperback)Louisa Morgan (author)
Discover the story of Ursule Orchiere in this captivating tale of family, witchcraft and love, perfect for fans of Practical Magic, The Witch's Daughter and A Discovery of Witches.
Brittany, 1741: There hasn't been a witch born in the Orchiere clan for generations. According the elders, that line is dead, leaving the clan vulnerable to persecution. Ursule Orchiere has been raised on stories of the great witches of the past. But the only magic she knows are the false spells her mother weaves over the women who visit their fortune-telling tent.
All of that changes when Ursule comes of age and a spark of power flares to life. Thrilled to be chosen, she has no idea how magic will twist and shape her future. Guided by the whispers of her ancestors and an ancient grimoire, Ursule is destined to walk the same path as the great witches of old. But danger hovers over her. Will she be able to escape the bloodlust of the mob or the flames of the pyre?
