A Lullaby for Witches
A Lullaby for Witches | Hester Fox
16 posts | 14 read | 9 to read
Two women. A history of witchcraft. And a deep-rooted female power that sings out across the centuries. Once there was a young woman from a well-to-do New England family who never quite fit with the drawing rooms and parlors of her kin. Called instead to the tangled woods and wild cliffs surrounding her family's estate, Margaret Harlowe grew both stranger and more beautiful as she cultivated her uncanny power. Soon, whispers of "witch" dogged her footsteps, and Margaret's power began to wind itself with the tendrils of something darker. One hundred and fifty years later, Augusta Podos takes a dream job at Harlowe House, the historic home of a wealthy New England family that has been turned into a small museum in Tynemouth, Massachusetts. When Augusta stumbles across an oblique reference to a daughter of the Harlowes who has nearly been expunged from the historical record, the mystery is too intriguing to ignore. But as she digs deeper, something sinister unfurls from its sleep, a dark power that binds one woman to the other across lines of blood and time. If Augusta can't resist its allure, everything she knows and loves--including her very life--could be lost forever.

This book ended my 5 star Witchethon. I liked it. It was ok. It could have been alot more though, it had good bones. It was missing something.

I did really enjoy the beginning of the book but found the ending rushed.. There were also a few unfinished story lines. All in all I did enjoy it for the most part 😁

This was my last book for this round of #lmpbc so @ShelleyBooksie expect the book back soon 🥳📖 @DinoMom @Tianarose

michellelav @ShelleyBooksie I‘ve been slacking but I am sending it out this week! 5mo

Overall a pick for me as I was really interested in Augusta‘s job in collections at a historical house where she starts to feel a bit more connected to Harlowe House than she bargained for and I was also interested in her investigating the family, especially Margaret the supposed town witch, that had once lived there. I was disturbed that Augusta seems to have an eating disorder which I couldn‘t tell if she was normalizing or didn‘t realize she

Palimpsest Had a problem with eating food. It‘s brought up by another Character,Leo, and another character which is a spoiler, but it wasn‘t discussed that she clearly had a problem and it seems it was brushed aside. Aside from this, that she starved herself and thought she just got dizzy from not drinking enough water, I thought the book was entertaining. 7mo

I haven't been in much of a reading mood this month but we decided to double up this year and instead of a simple Easter dinner, we had my daughter's favourite meal of homemade Chinese and cherry cheesecake to celebrate her birthday tomorrow! Lots of cooking and baking meant I got lots of #audiobook time in. I'm really feeling this vibe so I'm hoping to finish later tonight.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate and Happy Sunday to those that don't

Alfoster That looks delicious!❤️👊 7mo

This is the third time my Libby hold has come through for this, both times I held it, as I was in the middle of other reads. I'm still reading Troy by Stephen Fry, but going to start this. Third time's the charm 🤞

Finished my #lmpbc pick for the newest round. Cannot wait to hear everyone's thoughts. I wanted to confirm - is @DinoMom shipping to @Tianarose and Tiana shipping to @michellelav , Michelle shipping to me and I'm giving to @DinoMom ?

Tianarose That shipping order is correct! I can‘t believe you‘re done already! I‘ve barely gotten into mine :( I better hurry up. 9mo
michellelav @Tianarose I'm in the same boat as you! 😂 We've got this 🤓 9mo
Tianarose @michellelav glad I‘m not alone, I‘ve been in a bit of a slump unfortunately, knocking off a lot of audio books but don‘t have the attention for pages I guess. Hopefully I can finish in time. 9mo

I‘ve enjoyed 2 books by Fox, and was excited for this book… but wow. This was not good.

Lots of pretty words, but really a hot mess of stereotypical characters, with major issues (eating disorder, abuse, mental health) randomly sprinkled in for effect and then never dealt with again. The bones of a good story were here, but it wasn‘t fleshed out, I couldn‘t stand any characters, and the whole witch element was badly done. Eyerolls galore.

⭐️⭐️

ShyBookOwl Yikes. 9mo
BookBosomed1 Eek. Thanks for the honest review. I can‘t stand when serious social issues are sprinkled in a plot & not dealt with ethically. 9mo
