Annotation "Three women. Five centuries. One secret. 'I had nature in my heart, she said. Like she did, and her mother before her. There was something about us - the Weyward women - that bonded us more tightly with the natural world. We can feel it, she said, the same way we feel rage, sorrow or joy.' In 2019, Kate flees an abusive relationship in London for Crows Beck, a remote Cumbrian village. Her destination is Weyward Cottage, inherited from her great Aunt Violet, an eccentric entomologist. As Kate struggles with the trauma of her past, she uncovers a secret about the women in her family. A secret dating back to 1619, when her ancestor Altha Weyward was put on trial for witchcraft.... Weyward is a stunning debut novel about gender and control - about the long echoes of male violence through the centuries. But more than that, it is a celebration of nature, female power and breaking free." -- Provided by publisher. -- Violence, strong language and descriptions of sex.
