Thornyhold - Mary Stewart

The story is about Gilly who inherits a cottage after her cousin dies.  Gilly moves from the North East to the cottage near Salisbury.  When she arrives at the cottage she encounters Agnes, a neighbour and friend of her cousin, supposedly cleaning the cottage for her arrival but Gilly soon realises Agnes was looking for something…an old book of spells.
We follow Gilly as she makes new friends and falls in love with a local widower and we grow increasingly suspicious of Agnes and her son, Jessamy.  Agnes even becomes so desperate without the book of spells that she tries to conjure something herself, with comical results.

It was a nice pleasant tale by a local author with a bit of magic sprinkled in.  I look forward to reading more books by this author.
