Abstract:

Sixteen-year-old Nor, who comes from a long line of witches, prefers to hide her ability to communicate with nature and lives in constant fear of the return of her abusive mother.

When Rona Blackburn landed on Anathema Island, the island's original eight settlers burnt '"the witch' out of her home. So Rona cursed them. One hundred-plus years later, Nor Blackburn wants is to live an unremarkable teenage life. Her supernatural powers are unexceptional, and she hopes to escape the perverse side effect of the matriarch's backfiring curse. When a mysterious book promises to cast any spell for the right price, Nor senses a storm coming and is pretty sure she'll be smack in the eye of it. After all, the author of the book is Nor's mother. -- adapted from amazon.com info.
