River Witch

River Witch cover

Released 9 Sept 2022
Pre-order here.


First review is in:

‘A delightful adult fantasy not to be missed!… High, lyrical language creates a sense of time and setting.’

‘You and I are not ordinary folk, little mistress. We are wise. We call the river by her goddess name, Sabrina.

Hester, a farmer’s daughter, yearns for more than feeding lambs by the kitchen fire. She envies the freedom of the river nymphs and listens to Sabrina’s whispers: Be wise, be strong.
When Hester meets Aaron, a man powerful in herbal lore, she decides the healing wisdom of fields and forest is what Sabrina seeks of her. But her mother scorns her ambitions as witchery and decrees her daughter must have a husband to settle her. Hester flees to Aaron, only to discover he too, insists she should marry and be ‘ordinary’ folk.
While a desperate Hester battles for her dream, Aaron must reconcile his past to accept the future. Will the river help, or hinder?
