Friday 56 – Witches of Moonshyne Manor by Bianca Marais

Welcome to Friday 56! Hosted by Freda’s Voice, you turn to page 56 or 56% in any book or reading device and pick a sentence that grabs you.

My book of the week is The Witches of Moonshyne Manor by Bianca Marais (click for link to Goodreads)

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 30 September so keep an eye out for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Book Description From Goodreads:

A coven of modern-day witches. A magical heist-gone-wrong. A looming threat.

Five octogenarian witches gather as an angry mob threatens to demolish Moonshyne Manor. All eyes turn to the witch in charge, Queenie, who confesses they’ve fallen far behind on their mortgage payments. Still, there’s hope, since the imminent return of Ruby—one of the sisterhood who’s been gone for thirty-three years—will surely be their salvation.

But the mob is only the start of their troubles. One man is hellbent on avenging his family for the theft of a legacy he claims was rightfully his. In an act of desperation, Queenie makes a bargain with an evil far more powerful than anything they’ve ever faced. Then things take a turn for the worse when Ruby’s homecoming reveals a seemingly insurmountable obstacle instead of the solution to all their problems.

The witches are determined to save their home and themselves, but their aging powers are no match for increasingly malicious threats. Thankfully, they get a bit of help from Persephone, a feisty TikToker eager to smash the patriarchy. As the deadline to save the manor approaches, fractures among the sisterhood are revealed, and long-held secrets are exposed, culminating in a fiery confrontation with their enemies.”


“Chapter Thirty Nine

Thirty-three years ago – a month before the heist

Ursula gasped. “You all knew there was a spell like that in the grimoire?””

This is a 56% of the way through the book. It was the beginning of the next chapter so there wasn’t much to choose from, however, I thought that this quote hinted at possible future jeopardy!

I am really enjoying this book and can’t wait to see what happens next!

      I have seen your post and think that it looks like a very interesting book. I know very little about Emily Dickinson (I haven’t worked out how to leave a comment as you have to sign in to all sorts of things and it is my partner’s computer that I am on so everything is in his name…)
