    Excellent. Dark, deep, and intelligent. Fashion a rope with threads of theology, philosophy, quantum entanglement; twist in vision and memory, then knot a noose hang from it a young Salem witch. If ever, life and death, space and time, meet in single point, it will be as Annabel Horton foretells. This is a generous and intricate story. It takes hold and insists you read one more page, one more chapter... Gives the Mayfair Witches some serious competition. Highly recommended.

    This book gave me chills. Following Annabel as she went from bod

    This book gave me chills. Following Annabel as she went from body to body, visited time periods past and future, and fought for lover and family over and over. This book is chocked full of action, magic and philosophy.

    All through the book, though Annabel knows she is a witch, she also knows she is a Christian and that God has blessed her. She also spends a lot of time battling a demon who doesn't even have a bone to pick with her, it's a great aunt or something.

    I will admit, while I adored this book I was uncomfortable with the idea that the only religions touched on were Christianity and Satinism (media's definition on that one, too). But that being said, it really did drive the story. There is such a stark disparity between God and Satan. It made the story so colorful.

    As for Annabel, she is not without sin. She stole the bodies of innocents early on. Then she only stole from those she deemed "evil" but I think the problem in that is thinking she has the right to judge. The other mistake is working so hard for revenge over the loss of money in the time period she keeps returning to.

    It's kind of weird. She goes all over, but there's a central progression to the story that anchors it. I liked all the characters - and truly there's not a complete hero among the bunch. Annabel has caused some of her own problems, and her children and grand children have caused others. It's not all on that demon.

    The story also has some harsh reality in it. It's very well written, with a polished and professional feel to it. Yeah! Seriously couldn't put this down. I worked so hard yesterday to clean the boys room and do the house work that needed to be done...but all I could think about was when it was time to stop and pick up that book again! So yup, this one is getting 5 stars.

    Beautifully woven tale!

    The story weaving in this book astonished me. I was really expecting the book to be very different than it was. I guess I had preconceived notions because I read so many para type books. This book, however, is unlike anything I have ever read. It was a cross between a family saga, historical fiction, horror and paranormal. That does not even do it justice, but it had elements from them all.

    I loved how the author had "time travel" but did not allow themselves to get sucked into the normal time travel traps. The way the characters moved through time allowed the story to really develop and to be reveled in a very intriguing way. I never really knew what was going to come next, but as a new scene developed you knew it made perfect sense.

    None of the characters were completely "good", which made the plot twists very interesting. They were flawed people, just like we are all flawed. There were times when I simply did not like some of the characters. I love it when read a book and actually care about the characters, even if it is in an "I can not believe you are doing this" kind of way.

    There is some true darkness in this book. There was the "evil" of the book, which you expect to be evil, but there was also some human darkness. You know children were being treated horribly during different parts of the book, but you never get in depth descriptions of it. This added to the horror of it. That being said, if this is an issue that is too difficult for you, this may not be the book for you.

    I am hoping that there will be a sequel to this book. I really would like to find out what happens next.

    Loved this Book!

    I have read several of Vera Jane Cook's books in the past. I have loved every one of them. I just finished reading Annabelle Horton, Lost Witch of Salem. It was wonderful. The story, the language, the characters, were all superb. The book is long but worth the wait. It is my humble opinion this book is a masterpiece. I wait on baited breath for the sequel. This writer is definitely one to watch…..
