Bernice O'Hanlon is a contemporary witch with a troubled but determined soul, raised on a small Scottish island and now living in Glasgow. Follow Bernice as she tackles the issues which face her in her search for contentment. Can she finally use the tools she has always possessed and take the leap into her potential? Don't Doubt the Magic is the second book in Cathie Devitt’s trilogy of novellas about the life of Bernice O'Hanlon. Book one was a FINALIST AT THE PEOPLE'S BOOK PRIZE 2014/15.
Devitt deftly brings two of Scotland’s distinct and traditional cultures
together; the claustrophobia of tight knit island life and the alienation of
urban life. The characters are so sharply defined they feel like your own
friends and relatives and she hasn’t sugar coated the Gaelic culture either,
choosing to present it in all its glorious darkness. Imagine a Dan Brown novel
but with the plot twists and turns being absolutely believable. What a
brilliant TV series this trilogy would make.
