Born Wicked - Jessica Spotswood

I have to say, 
the best part of Spring break
is the ability to just read.
Do nothing but read.
And reading is what I have been doing.

Born Wicked is the first in The Cahill Witch Chronicles.
I originally came across the book
when I joined
YA Debut Author Challenge. 





Born Wicked is set in a late 19th Century New England. 
But it has an alternate history.
Here, witches are still persecuted
and society is ruled by the fearsome Brotherhood.
Women are repressed,
forbidden to educate themselves
and forced into marriage
or into the Sisterhood.

Cate Cahill
and her sisters are witches.
Their mother has died
and made Cate promise to protect her sisters.

Cate fears magic.
She soon learns of a prophecy 
that involves she and her sisters.
She's also falling in love
(in a sad attempt at a love triangle).

Cate soon learns
that in order to protect her sisters
she must sacrifice her own happiness.
