All good and every author took a different twist on the story of witches, most of them are of young women some are of perception of a person as a witch without any real witchcraft and some are of out-and-out witchcraft and magic. My favourite was probably Lindsay Smiths' Death in the Sawtooths but I didn't not like any of them, there were a few in which the point was a little over-pointy but overall I gobbled these down.
First up was Starsong by Tehlor Kay Mejia about an astrologer meeting an astronomer. Interesting read
Afterbirth by Andrea Robertson really did evoke some of the stress of the witch hunts and how women struggled to keep knowledge alive.
The Heart in her Hands by Tess Sharpe is the story of choice versus fate and wanting your own path.
Death in the Sawtooths by Lindsay Smith sees a necromancer investigate some deaths and I would read more set in this world
The Truth about Queenie by Brandy Colbert about healing and magic and love and learning to let go sometimes and to accept that sometimes things go wrong.
The Moonapple Menagerie by Shveta Thakrar is about a magical play and inclusion
The Legend of Stone Mary by Robin Talley is an urban legend meeting a wronged woman story. Quite strong.
The One who Stayed by Nova Ren Suma is a story of generational assault and anger and while short is very strong.
Divine are the stars by Zoraida Córdova is a story about inheritance and assumptions of what people are due, it's also about learning to accept yourself.
Daughters of Baba Yaga by Brenna Yavanoff is a story set in high school about two girls claiming their power.
The Well Witch by Kate Hart is about a woman surviving against some men who want to sieze her space and how they underestimate her.
Beware of girls with crooked mouths by Jessica Spotswood is about sisterhood and decisions made when magic and visions are involved.
Love Spell by Anna-Marie McLemore is about love and choice
The Gherin Girls by Emery Lord is a story that echoes some of the more magical realism stories and the witchcraft is on the surface but the sisterly love is the backbone of this one.
Why they watch us Burn by Elizabeth May was another strong story about a near future where girls suspected of witchcraft are used and abused in work camps and what happens when they band together.
Overall I thought this was a strong collection with some very good reads in it.

I really did not what to expect when I picked up this read. I had heard some mixed reports, but I really loved this book. I also loved how this book was regency romance with a magical twist. I also loved how this book focused on sisters and sisterhood. It was a very quick read, i also really loved the romance at the heart of the read, I did not expect to get a romance that I loved. It was such a fun read, I hope in future books that world building gets expanded. I really loved this read!

This was an interesting book. It took me awhile to wrap my head around the timeline of WWII. The stories of all the little women were unique. My favorite was Amy's story.
