My Thoughts:

Hour of the Witch

Chris Bohjalian is a local Vermont author and I have had the pleasure of reading his work from the very beginning. I used to love his weekly “Idyll Banter” newspaper column and one of the very first books I ever read “outside of school” was his Oprah Book Club pick, The Midwives.

One of his writing gifts is being able to write books that totally immerse you in an entirely new concept or experience, one you were probably not even expecting when you opened to the first page.

Chris Bohjalian is known for his character-driven novels that are also completely propulsive. His 2020 novel, The Red Lotus, was a page-turner and while it was a topic I would never have predicted I would be into, I had a hard time putting it down. What I have learned from his books, is that it isn’t always the topic matter that draws you in, but the storytelling itself. Hour of the Witch
⁣This novel was wholly engaging and totally thought-provoking. I loved how although it was set in the mid 1600s, there were so many connections to issues that still arise today.  This would make an amazing book club discussion and I highly recommend adding it to your spring 2021 reading list.
