March 2017 Monthly Motif Challenge: A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness

Romantic and well written, A Discovery of Witches is written by Deborah Harkness, a professor of history, so is accurate in its facts and the main character Diana's History knowledge is as palpable as the authors own.The characterizations are particularly good, as are the characterizations of Diana's parents, even if only through the notes and trinkets they left their daughter, the care they have for her shines through. It includes this months theme of time travelling very subtly but it was a book recommended by a friend that I was dying to read. Cleverly done and brilliantly built upon, I'd recommend to older fans of supernatural romance and fantasy.
