The Lighthouse Witches
The Lighthouse Witches | C. J. Cooke
Two sisters go missing on a remote Scottish island. Twenty years later, one is found--but she's still the same age as when she disappeared. The secrets of witches have reached across the centuries in this chilling Gothic thriller from the author of the acclaimed The Nesting. When single mother Liv is commissioned to paint a mural in a 100-year-old lighthouse on a remote Scottish island, it's an opportunity to start over with her three daughters--Luna, Sapphire, and Clover. When two of her daughters go missing, she's frantic. She learns that the cave beneath the lighthouse was once a prison for women accused of witchcraft. The locals warn her about wildlings, supernatural beings who mimic human children, created by witches for revenge. Liv is told wildlings are dangerous and must be killed. Twenty-two years later, Luna has been searching for her missing sisters and mother. When she receives a call about her youngest sister, Clover, she's initially ecstatic. Clover is the sister she remembers--except she's still seven years old, the age she was when she vanished. Luna is worried Clover is a wildling. Luna has few memories of her time on the island, but she'll have to return to find the truth of what happened to her family. But she doesn't realize just how much the truth will change her.

So if ever there was an argument for plugging along through a book you aren‘t loving it‘s this one! It took me so long to finish this and I admit I started skimming through the middle. Then magic happened and I figured out what was really going on and by the end I loved this novel! So so good! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book checked a lot of boxes for me, and ended up being one of my most surprising picks of the year so far.

My #UnpopularOpinion of the day: This is probably the dullest piece of Gothic fiction I‘ve ever read. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#the-lighthouse-witches

Tending my plant babies while I'm waiting for the cauliflower soup to boil.

Just noticed that my lucky bamboo has a new sprouting. The peppermint cuttings I took from a friend's garden for tea have sprouted roots.

Also, my daughter's "we'll make salt crystals" experiments from Spring are still on the tray.

Some recent purchases from the Target (top photo) and Amazon (bottom photo) Buy 2 Get 1 Free sales! Reading The Lighthouse Witches now - early days but really good so far - and most of the others I‘m adding to next month‘s Bookspin Bingo board. Both The Song of Achilles and It Ends With Us are impulse buys after hearing rave reviews on TikTok. Hopefully I love them too!

This was a wonderfully atmospheric read for Halloween season. When two children go missing on a remote Scottish island in 1998, the frantic mother is told stories of witches and wildings (supernatural children that look like real children). In 2021 the third child is now an adult and rushes back to the island when she gets word one of her sisters has been found. I enjoyed the book, giving it an almost 4/5 stars.

C. J. Cooke‘s The Lighthouse Witches is out today! I loved this book—perfect creepy vibes for fall! And a lovely Blueberry Peach Cobbler teacup candle from Beautifully Novel (you can find her on Etsy, if you‘re interested).

The Lighthouse Witches takes place on an island off the west coast of Scotland (for some reason it's never called the Hebrides in this book.) A mother moves there to paint a mural inside a lighthouse and uproots her daughters to do so, but then they disappear. The island has a long sordid history including witchhunts and missing children, and the author has used a lot from Scottish folklore and history.
