Paula Brackston / The Witch's Daughter / Total Immersion Literary Fantasy

The Witch's Daughter, just what I wanted to read
Paula Brackston is a story teller
I was drawn in so quickly, so comfortably
Mind you, the story is not all sweet
A good story has sharp edges
The Witch's Daughter is full of sharp edges
Always on the periphery of sight and mind
Lurking, suddenly present

The evil in this story is daunting
Like the protagonist, immortal
Always looking for her
Occasionally finding her

The story spans three hundred and forty eight years
The shifts in time handled deftly
Never jarring the sensibility of the reader
Always holding the reader close
Close to Elizabeth Anne Hawksmith's heart
A warm, compassionate, loving heart

The conclusion
That of a good story
Not saccharine, Not bitter
