"With a profound understanding of the ties that bind us through the generations and beyond the grave, Suzanne Palmieri has created some of the most emotionally resonant characters I’ve met in a long time. An enthralling tale of murder, magic, forgiveness, and redemption, The Witch of Belladonna Bay cast its southern spell on page one and hasn’t released me yet." —Brunonia Barry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader and The Map of True Places

"Ms. Palmieri's authentic dialogue, and ability to paint a family in crisis, is both charming and layered. If you're a lover of Southern fiction, magic in its many forms, and the kind of storytelling that keeps you turning the pages, you've come to the right place, y'all."—Lesley Kagen, New York Times bestselling author of Whistling in the Dark
"Magic weaves its way through this beguiling southern gothic, swirling from the moss-laden trees around the Big House through the misty and menacing Belladonna Bay, and settling into the hearts of Bronwyn and her niece, Byrd, whose Strange Ways most people just don’t understand. Reminiscent of Sarah Addison Allen’s Garden Spells, this bewitching tale of ghostly mystery, love and family ties will enchant you from the very first page and linger in the air around you long after the last."— Wendy Webb, bestselling author of The Fate of Mercy Alban
