Okay, going to say upfront, I loved this book. There. End of review. Not really…

The Witch of Tin Mountain threads the story of three generations of women who live in the Arkansas mountain town of Tin Mountain. They are poor but hard-working healers and midwives using spells from a grimoire, passed through the family, to assist their friends and neighbors. But a dark presence, in the guise of a handsome man plague them.

In 1931, Gracelynn and her Granny eke out a living. She’s happy and thinks she’s in love. But her life is upended when a fifty-year-old promise comes due. As Gracelynn grapples with her new found magical power she must do what those before her could not.

Like I said, I really enjoyed this imaginative story full of strong women. The writing is wonderful, the setting intriguing and the story compelling. There is a tender love story to ice the cake. I had a hard time putting it down. 

I highly recommend this book to lovers of historical fiction/historical fantasy fiction/ magical realism

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
