I was captivated by the time I had finished the first paragraph. Set in 17th-century Scotland, The Betrayal of Maggie Blair follows the adventures of 16-year-old Maggie as she tries to save herself and her relatives from the accusation of witchcraft. While the book does unfold a little sedately at first, the rich prose, together with the vivid imagery and precise historical detail, all work together to make this book a riveting and compelling read. Recommended for readers 13 and older.
