    Awesome

    Amazing! I never wanted it to end. One of Caroline B. Cooneys best. A unique retelling of the Shakespeare's Macbeth. It captures romance, adventure, and betrayal.

    Caroline B. Cooney takes Shakespeare's MACBETH to new heights with ENTER THREE WITCHES. <BR/><BR/>Lady Mary is set for life. She has a bright future complete with a betrothal to a handsome boy, a castle of her own, and more than she could ever want. When her father is hanged for treachery, that bright future is ripped from her fingers. Instead, she becomes a maid in the household of Lord and Lady Macbeth, a dangerously powerful couple who will do anything to get their way. <BR/><BR/>As people drop dead and the events from MACBETH unfold around Mary, she finds that life is harder than she once believed. <BR/><BR/>This novel is enchanting, but difficult to follow at times. It bounces from character to character within the chapter, allowing you to see all that is happening at once. Ms. Cooney ties the novel in with Shakespeare's MACBETH using both events and quotes taken directly from the play. This is definitely recommended for the history buff or Shakespeare fan.

    Shakespeare Adds a Dimension

    It can be difficult to get high school students excited about Shakespeare, or, for that matter, history. Murder most foul, however, is fascinating. In her own inimitable style, Caroline Cooney (of The Face on the Milk Carton fame) does a remarkable job of filling in ¿the rest of the story.¿ Lady Mary of Cawdor is ensconced at Inverness castle in the care of Lord and Lady Macbeth. She is surrounded by characters such as Swin (the butcheress), Ildred (a lady of lesser note and appreciation), and Father Ninian (priest for the Macbeths). This story chronicles what happens as the people surrounding Lord and Lady Macbeth begin to realize the complicity of the Macbeths in the murder of King Duncan of Scotland. Lady Mary¿s father is hung for treachery, and her own safety is in question. When Macbeth ascends the throne, Lady Mary continues in a state of limbo. This is a story of survival, loyalty, and the end of innocence. It introduces characters that are interesting and whose humanity makes readers pull for them. The book is broken into chapters and subsections that each reference a part of Shakespeare¿s play, and the story is followed by an Author¿s Note that explains a little of Shakespeare as well as some of the Scottish history that was a part of the making of this story. It is a fabulous resource for teachers who are teaching Shakespeare, Creative Writing (providing an excellent exercise in filling in the blanks left by stories written by great authors), as well as History and Sociology. It is a wonderful opportunity to discuss feudal societies and the role of women throughout history.
