Blessed with a gift...cursed with a secret.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood is about three sisters who are witches,
but they have to keep it secret from everyone,
including their own father.
The eldest sister, Cate,
is tasked with protecting her younger sisters,
on their mother's death,
and this is no easy feat,
especially with The Brotherhood in charge of this alternate history world.
If Cate and her sisters are found out, they could be put in an asylum or put to death.
Cate is faced with her 17th birthday approaching
where she has to get married or go into the convent,
but how can she leave her sisters unprotected?
Then there's the prophecy that may complicate things.
I really enjoyed this book ...
there was romance, mystery, and magic.
I enjoyed everything except the ending,
which definitely leaves you hanging for the next novel in the series.
