    I read this novel in one weekend and thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in the world of 1800's Newfoundland. Winsor paints a compelling picture of the strength of the people and the hardships they endure in their lives. The historical view on witches and their treatment by society is fascinating, as is Winsor's portrayal of Molly Chant, a compelling character who overcomes a life time of superstition and suffering to stay true to who she knows she is. I loved every minute of this book! I read this novel in one weekend and thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in the world of 1800's Newfoundland.

    Couldn’t put it down “The Apprenticeship of Molly Chant” by Jeanette Winsor is an expertly told tale of a girl apprenticed into womanhood.

Readers experience the predators’ hatred and punishment, Molly’s pain and anger, and her efforts to accept and forgive herself and others. Jeanette Winsor adeptly evokes strong feelings for Molly, her friends, her enemies and her environment.

Jeanette Winsor adeptly evokes strong feelings for Molly, her friends, her enemies and her environment. While reading I was enfolded in nineteenth century Newfoundland. The setting is vivid in the generosity of the people but also in their conventions (and prejudices). I could hear their speech, taste their food, and smell the salty air. While Winsor’s characterization is my favorite aspect of the novel, the atmosphere is a close second. This Caribbean woman endured the cold but enjoyed the sounds of the birds and waves lapping against the boats. *** mild spoilers*** I love this novel and cannot wait to continue life with Molly and her descendants. In this first book in the series, Molly battles dogged misogyny; I have a hope in my heart that life will go a little easier on her descendants.

    This was an interesting book. I couldn’t put it down once I started. The life of Molly was indeed a hard one dealing with all sorts of challenges from her time in Ireland to St John’s to her life near Bonavista. I highly recommend.
