Witch by Denise Weimer
Having restored Michael Johnson's ancestors' house and apothecary shop and begun applying the lessons of family and forgiveness unearthed from the past, Jennifer Rushmore expects to complete her first preservation job with the simple relocation of a log home. But as her crew reconstructs the 1787 cabin, home to the first Dunham doctor, attacks on those involved throw suspicion on neighbors and friends alike. And while Jennifer has trusted God and Michael with the pain of her past, it appears Michael's been keeping his own secrets. Will she use a dream job offer from Savannah as an escape, or will a haunting tale from a Colonial diary convince her to rely on the faithfulness of his love?
My Take: Witch is the 3rd book in the Restoration Triology by Denise Weimer. I haven't read the first two books and think that they probably would add some more light to what is happening in this book but I enjoyed this book just the same. The author weaves the past and present together to form a compelling story that is both thrilling and uplifting. I enjoyed the history throughout the book and learned quite a few things that I didn't already know about the conflict with the Native Americans. I also liked the present day story of restoration in both the buildings and the lives of the characters. This is a Christian historical fiction book and God is very much a part of the story. I hope to go back to read the other 2 books.
I received a review copy of this book from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.
