T his is your story, child. This is why it seems you have everything, but you feel you have nothing those feelings of anguish and rage are the. Witch Child. Celia Rees. In this book a girl called Mary, living in the seventeenth century, tells the story of her life, starting from the time when her grandmother is.
It was great to see how easily Mary was accepted into the Native American community - you think that finally, after sailing to the New World to find it, Mary's found her safe haven, where she is loved for who she is, who she really is. One of my favorite YAs I have read in a long time: She sees her grandmother hanged, is rescued by a stranger, takes ship for America and finds a place in a Puritan community there. This book follows "Witch Child". All that befalls her, she records in her diary and as she writes, she stitches the pages inside a quilt for discovery would mean death.
This study guide contains the following sections: After Mary's grandmother is executed as a witch, Mary flees her native England for a newfound colony in America, developing strong friendships and beginning to learn the power within herself as she finds her place in the New World.
However, when the witch hunts begin in her new home, Mary fears her true nature will be discovered. After Mary's grandmother is hanged as a witch, Mary is spirited away by a noblewoman, her long-lost mother, who sends her to America to escape persecution.
On the ship across the sea, Mary befriends Martha, Jonah, and the Riverses, constantly fearing her true nature will be revealed whenever witches are mentioned which occurs whenever things go badly.
Once they reach Salem, they continue on to Beulah, the settlement in the wilderness that has been built by the preceding congregation. Mary lives with Martha, Jonah and Tobias, while the Riverses build a home next to them. She spends a lot of time in the forest helping Jonah, an apothecary, learn the healing properties of local plants.
Mary soon meets and befriends Jaybird, an Indian who teaches her about the land. While helping Goody Johnson, Mary learns that Reverend Johnson saved his wife from being drowned as a witch.
She believes she would rather die than live Goody Johnson's life. After Goody Johnson dies during childbirth, Reverend Johnson pursues Rebekah Rivers, despite the fact that she is promised to Tobias, Jonah's son, and when his suit is denied, Reverend Johnson insinuates that he suspects Mary of witchcraft. The Vane sisters and their friends accuse Mary of witchcraft, promising to keep her secret if she aids them in securing their future husbands, but they begin dabbling in witchcraft themselves when Mary refuses.
As signs of witchcraft are found in the forest, Martha finds Mary's journal and wants to destroy the dangerous memoir, but instead, Mary sews her journal into her quilt. How long does it take to write a book?
If you begin from the first insight it can be a very long time. I studied American History at university and remember thinking about those first settlers, surrounded by vast forests, on the edge of an unexplored continent, an ocean from home.
No wonder fear grew among them and resulted in Salem. Many years later, I was reading about 17th century witch persecutions in England and I began to speculate. What did that mean to be a witch? I thought of it as a kind of shamanism. It occurred to me that Native Americans were a shamanistic people. The beliefs and skills which would have condemned a woman to death in one community would have been revered in the other.
But other than that, I loved the book and would definitely recommend it! Jun 16, kari rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is much better than Witch Child which seems more like a preamble to this one that a separate story. I don't understand why these two books weren't combined into one great story instead of two. This one, the story of Mary is completed and her tale is very compelling, I wanted to know what happened to her when she left the settlement.
What I didn't really care for is that it is told through the visions of a descendant of Mary's in our time. I don't really understand why the story was tol This book is much better than Witch Child which seems more like a preamble to this one that a separate story. I don't really understand why the story was told this way as it didn't add to the enjoyment of the story and seemed to be more of a disctraction than helpful.
The modern day characters seem to be there simply as props for the story with no real development of the characters and none of their stories are really told. I guess we aren't really supposed to be interested in them but then, why tell the story through them?
I have a hard time deciding how many stars to give this because while I loved the story of Mary, I truly felt the way it was told wasn't well done. I'm somewhat disappointed. Aug 08, Raelyn Falkin rated it really liked it Shelves: In this sequel to Witch Child, the writing and story is just as good.
Unlike the first novel, we learn about what happened through Mary Newbury through Agnes; a new college student who has a spiritual connection with Mary. We get to see Agnes as she deals with this new information of seeing what happened to Mary throughout her lifetime.

In the first book, the author portrayed it as if Allison — the woman who finds the diary pages in the quilt — had written the book and was asking for further information. I enjoyed this sequel as much as the first book. It wraps up all the burning questions from book one basically, what happens to Mary next and sums up the rest of her life in a creative way.

It was heart wrenching, the suffering that happened for all involved, because of lack of understanding and prejudices.
I was grateful to have closure to Mary's story. I don't know why I didn't love this story, but it was still a good story. Jun 05, Ryan rated it liked it. The sequel to the brilliant "Witch Child" by the same author.
This second book picks up the story nicely, but I found it less fulfilling. I wanted it to simply follow the main character of the first book, but instead it wove in new characters necessitated by the change in time period, etc. I mean, you HAVE to read it if you've read the first book Oct 18, Tywanna Johnson rated it it was amazing.

An enchanting sequel to Witch Child. Try as hard as she might to fit in, Mary is an outsider — and a young, intelligent, and independent female, at that — and when things start to go sideways, she proves the most convenient of scapegoats.
The story finds Mary where Witch Child left off: A she-wolf comes to her in the middle of an especially harsh snowstorm, caring for Mary until the morning, when her friend Jaybird and his grandfather White Eagle come to her rescue. Thus begins a rather epic journey, beginning at The Cave of the Ancestors and ending many decades later, in Canada. Mary marries Jaybird, in a terribly bittersweet romance and gives birth to and adopts several children, one of whom she buries much too early; becomes a pupil to White Eagle and, in time, a respected healer in her own right; establishes a secret medicine society, still in existence to this day; and travels ever northward, trying in vain to stay ahead of the escalating tensions between indigenous peoples and the French and English settlers.
Whereas the French pirate Le Grand drugs, rapes, and threatens to sell or enslave her, the Mohawk warriors who seize her and her children adopt them into a village decimated by disease. For better or worse, the supernatural takes a much more prominent role here than in Witch Child. She can assume the guise of nonhuman animals; her mother and grandmother appear to her as a wolf and a hare, respectively; she has premonitions and experiences visions. Agnes, having recently left her home on a New York reservation for college — she wants to be an anthropologist, much to her Aunt M.
Agnes suspects that Mary might be her ancestor, and together, she and Alison try to learn more about what became of Mary and her friends. The early scenes between Alison and Agnes are at times painfully boring; one chapter includes a car ride.
Often I found myself wishing that Rees would spin the tale back to Mary. Unfortunately, Alison remains a rather underdeveloped character, hard to care about one way or the other.
Through Agnes, Aunt M. A missed opportunity, if you ask me. All in all, Sorceress was a suspenseful — and at times painful — read.
Her skin was the color of clear wild honey.
The eyes, though—the eyes were a surprise. She wore it long, past her shoulders. She was only eighteen, but already a few silver hairs were threading down from the parting. She would have a white streak there, just as her aunt had, and her grandmother before her. She frowned, thick dark brows drawing down. Dec 01, Loumarie rated it it was ok. The first book was fantastic and I loved that the story was told in a series of diary entries.
You, as the reader, were really able to grasp her struggles and really understand her fears of being accused of being a witch. You can really connect with the main character. It was fascinating to see into her mind and understand how the littlest offense can lead you to the gallows. This second installment was disappointing and I felt it dragged from one tragedy to the next. There was no connection whatsoever with any of the characters.
It started off on an interesting note, which was why I gave it two stars. However, what drew me in was the modern narrative on Native Americans and I figured there would be more of a connection between the main character, Agnes, and the character from the previous book, Mary. The book jumps back and forth from modern day and to the past, which threw me off a few times. It simply didn't flow well. It started off telling one story, but then forgot about it a quarter into the book and then suddenly the last 10 pages went back to the previous story.
I did appreciate the updates in the very back of the book on the fates of characters from the previous book. Overall the book was disappointing.

Mi ha incantata con i suoi occhi grigi e con la sua dote di guaritrice, mi ha fatta soffrire a ogni morte che le ha dilaniato il cuore. L'ho seguita in un'altra fuga, attraverso la crudele lotta fra coloni e indigeni, e continuo a ripensare agli spiriti della foresta che non abbandonano chi li sa osservare, al lento agonizzare dei veri americani. Era da tanto tempo che un libro non mi colpiva dritta al cuore. Sep 10, Christina rated it it was ok. When I read Witch Child, the Puritans were a completely unexplored aspect of America for me, for I'd never heard of, or studied them.
However, the book was so creatively, spellbindingly, informatively written that I was gripped from beginning to end, and I'm thankful for the historical facts it provided me with - we later did The Crucible in English.
Despite that, Sorceress just didn't keep me as entranced as the other book did. Agnes frustrated me at some points, not because of her character, b When I read Witch Child, the Puritans were a completely unexplored aspect of America for me, for I'd never heard of, or studied them. Agnes frustrated me at some points, not because of her character, but because I didn't care about the modern people as much as the past! I wanted Mary's story to continue, not be dependent on a girl in the 21st century.
Aug 31, Lauren rated it really liked it. WAY better than the first book, I just wish I knew why the author decided to abandon the journal entry style when writing this book? It was super weird to go from the first to this one and have the formatting change. The beginning was incredibly weak and slow.
