"The Return of the Witch" is a historical fiction novel that follows two young women as they become entangled in the Shakers, a religious group. As women have become more independent in society and work, so have the Shakers. They have stopped believing in God and instead rely on their own strength to do what they need to do. Inspired by interviews with the Shakers themselves and historical research into their practices, Paula Brackston created this novel that centers around themes of female empowerment."

The Return of the Witch tells the story of a powerful and compelling woman who is entering her fifth decade on this earth, an age where it is time for her to prepare for her own death. She's built a new life for herself: one that she can die in peace in. Every day starts with sacrifice - from prayer, to fasting, to genital mutilation - until she has made it through her last year.

In this audiobook, the protagonist is introduced to a society where witches are hunted and killed. The characters then go on a journey of raw emotional discovery as they learn about the witches' past and why they have been persecuted. It's a powerful story about discovering one's true self.
