Three sisters of magical blood, living deep in the woods with their mother. One day the mother gets ill and the sisters will do anything to help her get better. Even if it means that all three will leave her alone and go in search of a mystical herb. But one of them is taken by other people to be burned as a witch, and sisters are now trying to save her. All of a sudden, they can speak with horses, but they are still denying being witches.
Ok, I get the point about suspense and the moral of the story - that family is the most important thing in the world. But other than that, there is no need for half a story. I have some questions about it: Why does the mother never bother to tell her daughters she is a witch? Or that they are witches? Wouldn’t it be better to show them and teach them that magic is nothing to be feared of? Not to let them be “delicate flowers in the storm”. Why are all three going to find a cure? It would’ve made more sense that at least one of the sisters stayed to look after the mother.
I’m not a fan of cliff-hanging ending either. Like there was supposed to be a very important moral of the story, but is somehow escaping us. Just because it's for children, doesn't mean the story shouldn't be smart.
The story is cruelly lacking in maturity, as much in the narration which is often repetitive as in the style which is intended for younger readers. I don't have a problem with children's books, but the best children's books are those that are subtle enough to wink at adults and keep them interested. "Witch Hearts" fails to do that.
Good short story. Totally a cliffhanger though and to get anything out of this you will need to purchase the next books in the series. The story line in many books continue the saga, or build on the first story, this one however is like one book sold in separate chapters. If that’s your thing, you will like the first part of the story, if not.......
