Description:
Fleetwood Shuttleworth is 17 years old, married, and pregnant for the fourth time. But as the mistress at Gawthorpe Hall, she still has no living child, and her husband Richard is anxious for an heir. When Fleetwood finds a letter she isn't supposed to read from the doctor who delivered her third stillbirth, she is dealt the crushing blow that she will not survive another pregnancy. Then she crosses paths by chance with Alice Gray, a young midwife. Alice promises to help her give birth to a healthy baby, and to prove the physician wrong. As Alice is drawn into the witchcraft accusations that are sweeping the North-West, Fleetwood risks everything by trying to help her. But is there more to Alice than meets the eye?

I loved the relationship in this book between Fleetwood and Alice. I love how brave Fleetwood is despite being such a young girl. Not knowing much about the Pendle witches to begin with it was a surprise to Google and learn that it's largely based on true events. It's a fascinating story and has some really fascinating female characters so I definitely recommend
