The Burning of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel
Date Finished: 22/11/12
I received this ebook for review by the author which was a great coincidence in itself. Just mere hours before I received this review request, I had came across Jen’s twitter page and thought this book sounded like a great read!
Feeling unwell this morning and told to take it easy and get lots of bed rest (which is not easy for me), I decided to start reading The Burning of Isobel Key.
At the start we are introduced to Lou who after walking out on her job, then ventures to Edinburgh with her roommate.
Whilst there Lou learns about the burnings of witches in the 17th century and unfolds a trail of discoveries not only about these events but also about herself and her family.
I loved how this ebook skipped back and forth from Lou and Isobel Key (of 17th century). I found myself lost within the plot and I just couldn’t stop reading chapter after chapter!
This is Jen McConnel’s first book and what a beauty it is. Can’t wait to read more by Jen in the future…
