“To be a witch is to have power in a world where women have none.”
The Witch Haven
By Sasha Peyton Smith
We were out at Ardenwood and I got this beautiful picture and the only way to see the whole thing is to make it into a reel. So enjoy the beautiful pumpkins with this lovely book.
Reality: We spent 3 hrs at the farm and on the way back to the pumpkin patch we got 5 min to look. This was a very fast photo shoot of my girls then my books😂
I got lots of shots at the farm though I’ll post throughout the week.
I enjoyed this book the curious way it started, how Frances discovers she has magic to being whisked away to a hidden magic school for girls.
But she has so many questions and the mystery in the beginning. Enjoying the characters and the coven they are creating, set in the early 1910s.
The learning of magic and the different gifts each witch had was fascinating. Since all people are different it would make sense that magic would manifest differently for everyone. The cliffhanger at the end makes me happy I have The Witch Hunt that came out this week!
I’m in The Witch Hunt tour later this week. So check it out!

The Last Magician meets The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy in this atmospheric historical fantasy following a young woman who discovers she has magical powers and is thrust into a battle between witches and wizards.
In 1911 New York City, seventeen-year-old Frances Hallowell spends her days as a seamstress, mourning the mysterious death of her brother months prior. Everything changes when she’s attacked and a man ends up dead at her feet—her scissors in his neck, and she can’t explain how they got there.
Before she can be condemned as a murderess, two cape-wearing nurses arrive to inform her she is deathly ill and ordered to report to Haxahaven Sanitarium. But Frances finds Haxahaven isn’t a sanitarium at all: it’s a school for witches. Within Haxahaven’s glittering walls, Frances finds the sisterhood she craves, but the headmistress warns Frances that magic is dangerous. Frances has no interest in the small, safe magic of her school, and is instead enchanted by Finn, a boy with magic himself who appears in her dreams and tells her he can teach her all she’s been craving to learn, lessons that may bring her closer to discovering what truly happened to her brother.
Frances’s newfound power attracts the attention of the leader of an ancient order who yearns for magical control of Manhattan. And who will stop at nothing to have Frances by his side. Frances must ultimately choose what matters more, justice for her murdered brother and her growing feelings for Finn, or the safety of her city and fellow witches. What price would she pay for power, and what if the truth is more terrible than she ever imagined?
