by Emilia Hart
 Historical Fiction: This is a twisty novel that's layered and engaging: a  multigenerational story about the power of women and the obstacles they faced over the centuries. It follows three different women, all likable, as they strive to overcome the constraints of a male-dominated society.

Praise For This Book

"A triumphant debut...the magic harnessed by the characters feels completely real in this captivating outing." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lovely and vivid, Emilia Hart's voice is totally original, both gentle and fierce...A bold and bewitching debut, the big takeaway is that the power and magic found there is already in you, waiting for you to finally embrace it." --Sarah Addison Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Other Birds

"A thoughtful and touching debut, Weyward [is] a tour de force rendered with striking ingenuity. Hart creates this imaginative tale with insight and intensity, finely drawn characters and a wealth of clues...with arresting prose and passages that approach poetry...But what sets Weyward apart from other witchcraft-related fiction is Hart's wise decision to also explore topics that require no belief in the dark arts: men's fear of women and the violence it can generate, women's affinity for their ancestors and the blessings bestowed by intimate contact with the natural world." --The Free Lance-Star of Fredericksburg

"A riveting journey of family secrets, betrayal, and resilience." --Zibby Mag

"Weyward is a bewitching historical fiction that will entrance fans of Alice Hoffman with its take on natural magic and sisterhood." --E! Online

"A promising debut...Hart links the three stories very cleverly in this entertaining read about witchcraft, maternal ties and the power of the natural world." --The Times (UK)

"Weyward glows and glimmers with hidden powers, thrills and danger...[and] draws readers inexorably to a glorious conclusion that celebrates connectedness and the power of women and nature...A suspenseful, magical debut." --Shelf Awareness

"Gripping...Thoughtful and at times harrowing, this novel is a successful blend of historical fiction and modern feminism." --Kirkus

"Tension and suspense are skillfully maintained as these women seek to extricate themselves from dire circumstances and discover secret strength. The result is a tale of magic and female empowerment and an atmospheric, gripping read." --Booklist
