About the Book:
There’s no such thing as witches, but there used to be.
In 1893, as before, as always, women must fight to hold power, let alone exercise it. Witchcraft is a thing of the past. Burnings, then silence. But there are still women who remember the words and ways, and who have the will to conjure magic. And there are women determined to win their right to a voice at the ballot box.
Then there are the three Eastwood sisters, together once more in New Salem, who will end up fighting for both--and their lives: the youngest and wildest, James Juniper; the middle and steadying sister, Agnes Amararanth; and, the oldest and most bookish, Beatrice Belladonna. Attacked by forces who should be far more powerful, the three may once again bring women’s power into the world… This time, they hope against hope, it will end differently.
The Once and Future Witches is Hugo Award-winner Alix E. Harrow’s follow-up to her stunning, multiple-award-nominated debut, The Ten Thousand Doors of January. One of the most exciting new voices in fantasy, Harrow here works a heady, radical magic all her own.
