Early Review: The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox

Sep 13, 2018

Two centuries after the Salem witch trials, there’s still one witch left in Massachusetts. But she doesn’t even know it.

Take this as a warning: if you are not able or willing to control yourself, it will not only be you who suffers the consequences, but those around you, as well.

New Oldbury, 1821

In the wake of a scandal, the Montrose family and their three daughters—Catherine, Lydia and Emeline—flee Boston for their new country home, Willow Hall.

The estate seems sleepy and idyllic. But a subtle menace creeps into the atmosphere, remnants of a dark history that call to Lydia, and to the youngest, Emeline.

All three daughters will be irrevocably changed by what follows, but none more than Lydia, who must draw on a power she never knew she possessed if she wants to protect those she loves. For Willow Hall’s secrets will rise, in the end…


What an interesting mystery! I love the fact that I never knew what direction the story
was leading me in. One moment I thought I had an idea and then I was taken in a different direction. Twist and turns ignite a wonderful need to the turn the pages, to learn more. I wanted to strangle Catherine many times throughout the story. I felt Lydia was far too forgiving and just tolerated much from her sister. I wish we had learned more about Lydia and her powers. There is an entire story waiting for us there. I felt there were many questions left to the reader's imagination. Although this mystery had its dark and sorrowful moments, it also had a sweet romance weaved throughout. I can't wait to read more from Hester Fox.
