Overview

"Catherine LeVendeur is a unique spirit, a woman of twelfth-century France with a keen mind and curiosity that often puts her in peril and whose life reflects both the bonds placed upon a woman in her society and the ways in which a strong personality can triumph and succeed in spite of those strictures." "When Catherine receives a message from her grandfather saying that she and her family must come to his castle in Blois, she is intrigued... and then mildly alarmed when she finds out that he has sent for all the extended family. Given the difficulty of travel, what could engender such a summons?" It seems that the castle's well is going dry. Some of the family knows the story: They are descended from a poor but noble knight of Charlemagne and a fairy woman who was the guardian of the spring that feeds the well in the castle keep. The legend continues that as long as the spring flows, the castle will stand. The old man is wracked with fear, and to Catherine's observant eye, something else. Catherine is not inclined to believe in magical events and puts more faith (or distrust) in the human condition. As she settles in and reconnects with her family, she begins to see patterns that point to a very mortal bane and embarks on a search to uncover the secrets hidden in the castle. Her actions may imperil all she holds dear... but Catherine may have to risk everything to save them all.

    Incredible historical mystery

    To escape the heat in Paris, Catherine, Edgar and their three children visit her brother¿s manor house Vielleteneuse. When her brother comes back from the hunt he has with him an injured woman. Despite Catherine¿s efforts the woman dies, but a few seconds later she says that ¿evil is coming for all Andonenn¿s children¿ and BEGS Catherine to save them before the well runs dry. Catherine learns that the family legend is known to all her relatives except her. .......................... At the Castle of Boisvert, Catherine¿s grandfather summons all the descendents of Andonenn demanding they come to the ancestral home because their ¿protection¿ is fading. Neither Guillaume, his wife Marie nor Catherine & Edgar want to go but someone is causing dangerous accidents that force them to go to the haven of Boisvert. They find no safety in the Castle because the heir is killed and his brother is injured. A neighbor plans to take the castle with the help of a traitor but two women, who though seemingly mad, apparently hold the key to the castle¿s salvation and the people in it.......................... Although there are many incidents in THE WITCH IN THE WELL that seem to be supernaturally based, it is really the actions of two women who want the family to come to the castle and they don¿t care how much damage they cause along the way. Sharan Newman has written a totally enthralling historical mystery in which a castle with unexplored corridors and white subterranean floor are explored giving the book a gothic feel. There is treasure to be found but finding it is part of the mystery of this incredible amateur sleuth tale.............................. Harriet Klausner
