Iris Harper has lived in Pendleford for decades, the local witch is mistrusted by the townsfolk, but that doesn’t stop some coming to her begging for potions, spells and quick-fixes.
As time has marched on suddenly Iris is aware that her days are beginning to fade. Her sumptuous garden is turning against her, the sweet scent of rot potent and now a young girl has come begging for a solution at her door.
Yet, the problem she brings causes Iris to remember a man from long ago – the man she loved, the man she could never trust…
Here’s a lovely review from AlexaP on Amazon.co.uk:
‘Whether you’ve read the other books in the series or not, I thoroughly recommend getting a copy of this one. For existing readers of the series, it’s an interesting look into the life of Iris, the Great-Aunt whose passing away led Gwen back to Pendleford, the little village in which her story, ‘The Language of Spells’, takes place. For newcomers, it’s a great place to start and sets up the events of the following books perfectly…
Sarah Painter is one of those authors who can create a world you can lose yourself in, with vivid descriptions and imagery that jump off the page/screen. I’ve already recommended her work to friends and family and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again with this story or those that follow it.’
