Moll Dyer prays she can leave her troubles behind when she immigrates to the new world, but a paranormal threat grows, and soon follows her across the ocean to Maryland.
Colonial life in the Old Line state was tough on both man and woman. Hunger, disease, Indian attacks, and drought tested the resolve of the settlers daily, but troubles for the Dyers included the threat of a succubus on a mission! Will the demonic call initiated by her family prove too much to resist as she labors to rebuild her life in a distant land?
The legend of Moll Dyer originated in earliest colonial Maryland. Despite 300 years of civilization, and scientific reason, Moll’s name is still often heard there, especially around campfires late at night, or as a warning to misbehaving little people. Her spirit is often seen as a wisp of unnatural fog in the swampy woodlands near her homestead, with her half wolf companion at her side. This is her story.
Sister Witch: The Life of Moll Dyer is quite simply one of the most exciting, incredible, occult-inspired books I have ever read. Sister Witch has astounded me, I enjoyed every single moment of the book because it was by far a perfect read. The wonderful author of the novel, David W. Thompson e is a true literary talent because he managed to captivate and enthrall from the very beginning. To be honest, a part of me was always going to love this book because I love learning about the occult and witches in particular but even if I did not enjoy the occult, I would still love this book because it has action and adventure and fantastic writing that will keep the reader happy in bliss!
Sister Witch tells the story of a young woman called Moll Dyer. Moll is from the 18th Century who was born in Ireland; however, a horrific event happened to her in Ireland, and so she decided to immigrate to America for a better life and to move on. Sadly, her life will not be much better, and in fact, it will only get worse because after a terrible event happens, she is accused of witchcraft. The premise of the novel is just this, so much happens but what does happen is so brilliant that I am cautious to spoil it for you beautiful readers so please, read this excellent book to find out more.
I have to confess, I did not know that the protagonist of this novel, Moll Dyer was actually a real woman. I was shocked when I had discovered this because I thought I knew about all notable accused witches/witches however I was clearly wrong. Thompson is wonderful to bring Dyer’s sad story to life again for readers; he manages to write a slightly fictionalized account of her in which a significant amount of history is injected. In turn this makes for a compelling read… one that you will struggle to put down!
The story of Sister Witch is a sensational one because it encompasses everything good about literature. It has an outlandish, brave plot, enthralling characters and an incredibly well thought out backstory that will keep the reader wanting to read for hours on end. Sister Witch is a unique and special book, it is special for the obvious reasons… that it encompasses everything great about the written word, but it is unique because of the plot. The plot of this novel is something I have never read of or heard of before, it reads like a movie, and you are able to imagine the details in perfect glory. Never before have I read a book that has a ton of action as well as intellectual depth. In other words, this book has brains behind it, it is not a senseless, quick, action-adventure read.
David W. Thomson, the author does an incredible job of piecing together myth with historical accounts of the time and seamlessly integrates themes into one book of intrigue. Thompson is a phenomenal writer because he is dedicated to his work as well as passionate. His passion shines off the page and into the reader’s mind. His sometimes lengthy, beautiful descriptions will send the readers mind into visual overdrive, the reader will be able to perfectly imagine every detail the reader comes across and that in my opinion, is the sign of a talented author.
To conclude my thoughts on the brilliant piece of literature that is Sister Witch, I would say if you are looking for a historical fiction read that is unlike anything you have read… a read that will keep you entertained for hours on end as well as enthrall you then this sensational book is for you! Sister Witch gets Five Stars from me!
