Artist Laura Matthews and her husband Dan have given up their city life and moved to an ancient longhouse high in the mountains of Wales. Here she knows the wild beauty will inspire her to produce her best art, and perhaps the powerful nature of the place will give her the baby they have longed for so many years. But this high valley is home to others, too. Others such as Rhys, the charismatic loner from the croft, who pursues Laura with a fervor bordering on obsession. Or Anwen, the wise old woman from the neighboring farm who knows so much but seems to speak only in riddles. And then there is Merlin. Once he too walked these hills, when he was young and his legend as a powerful seer and magician was just beginning. It was here he fell for a young maid, and here he learned the cost of his love. In the Welsh mountains, so charged with tales and legends, Laura will find herself reaching through the gossamer-fine veil that separates her own world from Merlin's and discover some landscapes hold more magic than others.

In the spring of 1628, young Bess Hawksmith watches her mother's body swing limp from the Hanging Tree. She knows that only one man can save her from the same fate - Gideon Masters, the Warlock. She knows, too, that his help comes at a steep price. In present-day England, Elizabeth has built a quiet life for herself. She has spent the centuries in solitude, moving from place to place, surviving plagues, wars and the heartbreak that comes with immortality. Her loneliness comes to an abrupt end when she is befriended by a teenage girl called Tegan. Against her better judgment, Elizabeth opens her heart to Tegan and begins teaching her the ways of the Hedge Witch. But Gideon is hunting her still. He will stop at nothing, determined even after centuries to claim her soul. And now, Bess is not fighting to save herself alone: now, she must protect the girl she has grown to love like a daughter.

'Wild places make wild people, but only some have magic blood. There are those with frozen hearts, whose souls know only winter. They would drive me from my home. It will not do. Really, it will not.'In her small Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana. She has not spoken a word out loud since she was a child, and her silence - as well as the magic she can't quite control - makes her an oddity, a magnet for rumour, mystery . . . and resentment. Concerned for Morgana's safety, her mother arranges for Morgana to marry Cai Jenkins, the widower from the far hills who knows nothing of the nasty things folk say about her daughter.Cai takes his new wife home to his farmstead. As Morgana falls in love with the rugged mountainous landscape, her husband slowly wins her heart - and it seems that she has finally found a harmony her soul had never dared dream of. But it isn't long before a dark force makes itself known - a force which will stop at nothing to turn everyone against her. Determined to defend her home, her love, and herself from all comers, Morgana must learn to harness her power . . . or risk losing everything.Let The Winter Witch sweep you back in time, to a wuthering place where magic is as nimble as a heart is strong.Praise for The Witch's Daughter:'A riveting tale of sorcery and time travel' - Marie Claire.
