Surprisingly enjoyable. Lovely winter wonderland atmospherics!
The Familiars is a work of fiction drawn from the facts of the Pendle Witch Trials of 1612, with the vast majority of characters being real people, including the 17-year-old main character and Mistress of Gawthorpe Hall (itself a real place now owned by the National Trust & Lancashire County Council), Fleetwood Shuttleworth née Barton. This is a beautifully written story, and I found myself really caught up in Fleetwood‘s tale. Well worth a read.
