June’s Book Pick: Weyward

by Emilia Hart

Book Synopsis:

In 1619 Lancaster, 21-year-old healer Altha Weyward is accused of witchcraft after using powers learned from her mother to provide women with reproductive care. In 1942, 16-year-old Violet Ayres passes time by observing the creatures around her family home near the village of Crows Beck. Her father keeps her there because she exhibits the same strange behavior as her mother, Elizabeth Weyward Ayres. In 2019, pregnant 29-year-old Kate Ayres flees her abusive boyfriend and moves to a cottage in Crows Beck that was left to her by her great-aunt. There she finds documents about the Weyward women’s powers.
