The Moon Spun Round by Elinor Gill

Title: The Moon Spun Round
Author: Elinor Gill
Genre: Mystery/Supernatural
Publisher: Harper Collins, 2008


The cat went here, and the cat went there,
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat looked up.

The grey cat with eyes as clear as iced moonlight was there when Sally first came to the stone cottage. It looked small and harmless.

Sally Lavender has been betrayed. With the sharp, jagged remains of her life still capable of drawing blood, she takes refuge in the village of Hallowfield, a place of peace where she lick her wounds. Slowly her pain is eased, the emptiness filled - where she expected solitude, she finds friendship, and a strangely insistent sense of connection.

As the moon slowly turns, Sally discovers how strong and deep are the ties that bind her to this place and to the five very different women who take her under their protection.

When one of the five is murdered those ties demand retribution .

A contemporary murder mystery.
Wiccan spirituality.
Past life memories.
History of the persecution of  'witches'.

.............and a small grey cat casts a long shadow in this gripping tale of love, hate and envy.

Loved that cat!
Loved the story!
