This is three stories of young women living in different times; each is powerful in their own way and each independent and free thinking - a threat to the patriarchal and often parochial communities in which they live. They are"witches"; misunderstood and much persecuted.
Each of the stories, one of Veronica in Germany in the early 1600's, Katherine in Scotland at the beginning of the 18th century and Paisley in present day Australia, is well written - a chapter at a time about each of the young women, dealing with the discrimination and persecution that surrounded them. The stories are cleverly interwoven to demonstrate to the reader the sisterhood that exists between these women.
If you have not read about the witch trials in Europe between the 15th and 18th centuries, this is an excellent introduction which will encourage you to find out more.
