The Witch’s Daughter is about a woman who becomes a witch. Bess spends her life on the run from the warlock who turned her into a witch. In modern day Bess meets a teenaged girl whom she befriends and begins teaching her the craft.
The story jumps between modern day and various points in Bess’s past.
I found the story to be slow, with very little mention of magic until about the last fifty pages.
Bess doesn’t seem like a very realistic character, she’s quite naive for someone who’s been alive for around 400 years. I didn’t find any of the characters particularly likeable, they had a lot of flaws with almost no growth throughout the book.
Overall, the story was very different from how I originally thought it would be. I believe that is partially why I didn’t enjoy this novel.
My Rating: 2/5
