DNF. Boring and all the characters were annoying, especially the main character. Very not-like-the-other-girls vibes happening. It's creepy the dude likes her because she is mute. There wasn't one thing about this book I liked, and about 40% of the way through, I gave the hell up on it. ( )

Quite a joy to read, especially out loud. Very reminiscent of Goose Girl and it's corresponding series by Shannon Hale in that there is mostly minor magic practice and mostly intuitive. Surprisingly a secondary romance novel, with a wife and husband slowly getting to know each other after a betrothed marriage. The author, hailing from the country the tale takes place, was clearly able to keep everything sincere to history. Connected to protagonist on a very personal level, in that some attitudes I shared. Prepare for some gut-wrenching paragraphs, for there are a number of them. Some serious sensuality, but acceptable within the bonds of marriage in my opinion. May suggest a Welsh dictionary and pronunciation guide to enjoy the novel more by identifying the terms riddled throughout. Had a satisfying end and I feel that it stood alone from the first of the series. ( )

I liked it!

This book is long and has a lot of text. It’s very dense. It took me a long time to get through it, but I enjoyed the story.

It is kind of obvious who the villain is, but that’s okay.

I like the atmosphere, landscape and the idea of a main character who can’t speak is interesting. I also enjoyed watching Morgana and Cai figure themselves out.

This book featuring two powerful witches, one evil and one not, is set in rural 19th century Wales. The teenage protagonist, a "natural" witch whose powers are becoming more manifest to the people in her village, unwillingly weds a well-off farmer/widower she doesn't know, who lives a two-day drive away, in a marriage arranged by her mother. The farmer's property includes a sacred well which was once a destination for pilgrimage. The well has magic properties known to few people. For this reason the farm is coveted by a prosperous local woman who is secretly a witch. She had sought to marry the farmer, but he chose the teenager. The plot centers around the evil witch's attempts to disgrace and oust the teenage bride.

Despite the hackneyed plot, I enjoyed this book, because it was fun to follow the character development of the wild young witch, her patient husband who still grieved for his first wife, and their relationship.

I confess I take guilty pleasure in reading many novels about witches and their entanglements and difficulties with the conventional people around them. In fiction, a witch is usually just another type of misfit/loner (albeit one with supernatural powers). I think many of the introverts among us identify with such characters. ( )

Enjoyable story despite the villain’s plan seemed really dumb by the end. I kept wondering, why go to all this trouble when you might have snared the prize much earlier in the story?

I’m not certain elective mutism works the way it did in this story, but whatever.
