I have finally completed reading another book (hard-copy) by Paula Brackston called "The Witch's Daughter". It starts out as a really good read about this young child named, Bess Hawksmith back in 1628 in Wessex, who is a descendant of witches. The book leads us through her life as she travels through time reinventing a new identity for herself within each time period and helping humans while trying not to use her witch powers because she wants to do good around her. She is constantly fleeing from a warlock named Gideon Masters who also is able to reinvent himself and travel throughout time. He uses his powers all the time and is hunting down Bess. I like the way the book writes about the various historical events and time periods which include WWI and what was happening during the war then. However, it seems to me the author got into way too much fantasy towards the conclusion of the story while mixing it with historical details for each time period. So, I'm rather ambivalent about the book's ending. I think perhaps the author carried on too long with creating too many various alternate lives for the book's primary character, Bess Hawksmith.
