1- The Witches of Crannock Dale

When an enemy army threatens eleven-year old Mara’s home, she makes up her mind to save her family, one way or another. But when the knights protecting her village arrest her favorite aunt for witchcraft, she discovers that the difference between friend and foe may not be as obvious as she once thought.

This is a story of war and espionage, set in a low fantasy world. It is also about a child getting to know her mother and father in a new way.

Content: minor language and violence.

The whimsical nature of eleven year old Mara trying to avoid math problems and with a too curious nature by half is reminiscent of Anne of Green Gables. Mara’s ingenuity and boldness isn’t met with half so many disasters, but the problems Mara faces are no less dire, if not more so. An intriguing journey into adult problems, Mara navigates the threat of foreign invaders and a witch hunt that includes people in her own family. An enjoyable read, a well built world, and a raw picture of human nature that’s evocatively revealed in this tale.
