The Witches' Mark

Donald Lightwood

160 pp.  

Floris Books

Superstitious anglers; corrupt, feudal property owners; starving tenants—and an old lady who talks to the birds and animals and who is branded as a witch by the local villagers.

When fifteen-year-old Murdo befriends Old Pheemie, he discovers the hard way that the seventeenth-century East Neuk of Fife is not a good place to be if you are associated with anyone thought to be a witch.

Caught up in matters beyond their control, Murdo and his friend Alex find themselves in a race against time to save Pheemie before Silas Pow, the witch hunter, arrives to find her witches’ mark.

This is a gripping tale set against a backdrop of witch trials, superstition, and smuggling.

(Ages 9–12)
