The Bleak Midwinter

If you’re feeling deflated by a lack of Halloween spirit yesterday, we’ve got a book that will not only quench your thirst for spookiness, but spellbind you with its eloquence, wit and form: The Bleak Midwinter by Len Tyler. This page-turner has it all: a witch who concocts mysterious herbal medicine and lives alone with a toad and cat, a community isolated by an ominous snowfall, and that all-important creepy sense of impending hysteria. As the nights turn darker and we shiver our way into November, the sleek, smart pacing and dialogue of this wintry historical crime novel will keep your pulse racing.
