Kate flees London – abandoning everything – for Cumbria and Weyward Cottage, inherited from her great-aunt. There, a secret lurks in the bones of the house, hidden ever since the witch-hunts of the 17th century.
Violet is more interested in collecting insects and climbing trees than in becoming a proper young lady. Until a chain of shocking events changes her life forever.
Altha is on trial for witchcraft, accused of killing a local man. Known for her uncanny connection with nature and animals, she is a threat that must be eliminated.
But Weyward women belong to the wild. And they cannot be tamed…
Weaving together the stories of three women across five centuries, Weyward is an enthralling novel of female resilience and the transformative power of the natural world.
WEYWARD is bewitching early readers:
‘A story that absolutely lives up to its promise’
‘I didn’t want to put it down. I loved every character’
‘Phenomenal… I devoured this book’
‘Haunting, compelling, just sensational. Definitely one of the books of 2023’
‘The Weyward women have captured my heart’
