‘Set amidst the hysteria and brutality of Early Modern Europe, McWatters tells a gripping tale of three young women separated by time and geography, linked by matriarchy and an extraordinary calling. Rich with demons and bigotry, potions and politics, Hexenhaus draws a sharply observed line between modern day prejudice in Australia and the paranoia surrounding the European witch trials.’ Nicole Hayes, author of One True Thing.
