Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
4.5 stars out of 5!!! An excellent novel! Carolyn MacCullough writes an amazing story filled with magic and mystery, an excellent combination!
Tamsin, the black sheep, the odd one out in a family filled with magical Talents, even though she was destined to be one of the most powerful, she has nothing... or so she thinks...
Tamsin's sister Rowena on the other hand is very beautiful and powerful, and she knows it! She fits in and she is to become the next leader of the family, the one everybody turns to when decisions are made.
So when a man, a professor, comes into the book store Tamsin is working at, mistaking her for her brilliant sister Rowena, Tamsin decides that she can, and will, help him find a special clock that was lost. But the clumsy and nervous professor is not what he seems and there's a lot more that he wants from her, things that she may not be able to give...
I found the beginning slightly confusing but it all cleared up as I progressed through the story. It's quick and easy to read yet it isn't predictable. The ending is very satisfying yet it leaves the reader wondering what will happen next! It's very well written!
