The Coven's Daughter
Cecily may have occasional visions, but that doesnt' make her a witch! Fatherless and without friends, Cess knows shes lucky to be employed by a grand estate like Montacute House, even if it is as a poultry girl. On her thirteenth birthday, Cess finds a precious locket in one of her chicken coops, a strange discovery thats quickly overshadowed by her best friend William's disappearance two days later. The parson has already started planting rumors that the missing boys were bewitched, and the villagers think Cecily may be the culprit. The only way Cess can prove her innocence is by finding William, but shes soon embroiled in a plot that threatens her world and forces her to draw upon powers she never knew she possessed. Witchcraft, politics and intrigue combine in this gripping and wonderfully realized novel set in the Somerset of the 1500s.
