The Witch of Willow Hall is an atmospheric historic gothic story of a young woman finding herself. From the start when Lydia shares a memory of a boy next door, I wanted to figure out the mystery of her abilities. The writing creates a mysterious air around all of New Oldbury and Willow Hall itself. It's clear that something has happened there and that spirits still remain. While most of the story focuses on Catherine and Lydia's strained relationship, it gives a basis for Lydia's emotions and intent when she learns to harness her power. I found Catherine's character to be really interesting and wanted to know more about what drove her actions and decisions. It was really interesting to see what decisions the family made. Lydia's abilities didn't seem like they were the main focus of the story amidst all of the family drama; however everything seemed to come together in the end.
