    One thought on “The Gisburn Witch”

    1. "The Gisburn Witch" is a historical fiction novel written by debut author Sarah L King. In the interest of upfront honesty, I want to start by informing you all that the author is my wife and I was involved in some of the initial edits of the book. I am still trying to write a fair review but wanted to make sure everyone knows about the relationship I have with the book as I doubt I can keep it completely bias free. Anyway, the novel itself is based around the events that led up to the infamous [...]

    2. Where to begin? The Gisburn Witch is a novel which follows the life of Jennet Preston over many years. As to be expected in any novel which undertakes such a long period of time there are often gaps of several years between each chapter, but the author did great job in working in important information for the reader without it feeling forced. As a reader I welcomed this more than just as the tools for the story but I found myself generally interested in Jennet's life. What struck me about this n [...]

    3. It's my own book and I just couldn't give myself 5 stars as that would be cheeky.In all seriousness, the reason I wrote this book is that it was a story I wanted to read myself. Now it is finished I am very proud of it and enjoyed reading as much as I hoped I would.

    4. Jennet Preston was twice tried for witchcraft in the early part of 17th Century, at the same time as the Pendle witch trials, but because of the singular location, her story is largely ignored.We first meet Jennet when she is a teenager, working as a kitchen maid at Westby Hall, Gisburn where she falls in love with Thomas Lister, heir to the estates. Although their relationship is purely platonic, she is accused of seducing the boy and forced to leave her employment. Her father arranges a marria [...]

    5. This is a haunting, fascinating story. I had not heard of the Pendle witches, so partway through the story I looked them up. That was perhaps a spoiler, but I think it actually heightened the sense of dread and inevitability, which the author does very well in playing on through the last half of the book. Jennet, the protagonist, is a complex, well-constructed character: her very human mix of need, desires, confusion, yearning, loving and sadness is potent and makes her a character that lingers [...]

    6. **4 1/2 STARS**I'm shocked that this book doesn't have more reviews. It is beautifully written and a must-read for lovers of historical fiction. Due to the topic this book is based on along with the description, I suspected things wouldn't end well for Jennet. Regardless, I maintained hope throughout that everything would somehow work out, that maybe the author would throw in an HEA just to make readers happy. Maybe she did and maybe she didn't. You'll have to read it to find out. But I will say [...]
