Summary
In 1628, Veronica and her brother flee for their lives into the German woods after their father is burned at the stake. At the dawn of the eighteenth century, Scottish maid Katherine is lured into political dissent after her parents are butchered for their beliefs. In present-day Australia, Paisley navigates her way through the burning torches of small-town gossip after her mother's new-age shop comes under scrutiny. A riveting novel for young adults inspired by the true history of witchcraft and witch-hunts, Hexenhaus entwines the past and the present in three compelling narrative threads that will keep the reader on the edge of their seats. Set amidst the hysteria and brutality of Early Modern Europe, this book tells a gripping tale of three young women separated by time and geography, linked by matriarchy and an extraordinary calling. Rich with demons and bigotry, potions and politics, this book draws a sharply observed line between modern day prejudice in Australia and the paranoia surrounding the European witch trials
