My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Blackwater is a prequel to The Black Hours and is a short novella telling the story of Alice Pendle’s mother and father. We first meet Lizzie, Alice’s mother in Eversley in Hampshire where she lives with her mother Maggie. They are medicine women or “Cunning women” as they are known, who use herbs to heal the sick.
Often feared because of their ways, they have already moved five or six times to avoid prosecution from those who would call them witches. This is the tale of how Lizzie and Samuel Pendle fall in love and what drives them to move to Coggeshall which is where The Black Hours begins.
This book will work well as a companion book to The Black Hours which deals with the English Witch Trials.
