  • Haunting and beautiful, Corrag drew me in and transported me to the Scottish Highlands of the seventeenth century Alternately titled The Highland Witch or Witch Light, Corrag is a magical story about opening your heart to the beauty of your surroundings It is about learning to truly understand the people we encounter in our lives Susan Fletcher tells this story with gorgeous, poetical and vivid prose What townsfolk say we do and what we truly do are very different things I have cast no spells I [...]


  • It took me a little while to warm up to this book, but when I got into it, I was all in It took my breath away a remarkable work of historical fiction that reminded me very much of Mary Stewart s Arthurian saga Fletcher is a gifted storyteller the characters and seventeenth century Scotland spring to life in this wonderful tale.The story is based on a true historical event, the massacre of Glencoe in 1692, in which supporters of King William brutally murdered members of the MacDonald clan becaus [...]


  • There is a stillness and beauty to Susan Fletcher s writing that will enchant the reader and take your breath away with beautiful vivid descriptions of the Scottish Highlands and a tale that will transport you to another time and place Prepare to be bewitched Corrag is the story of a young woman who has witnessed the horrific massacare of Glencoe on a winters dawn in 1692, where William IIIs redcoats brutally slaughtered 32 of the McDonald s Men Women and Children Clan The reason for the massacr [...]


  • I m going to use this review as a rant at generic romance fiction The kind that has an uncritical view of romantic love, deploys a formulaic structure of expectation and reimbursement, like readily assembled furniture, and at no point is self aware of the smoke screens it s pedalling Probably the best novel about romantic love of the 20th century was The Great Gatsby because it exposed the emptiness that often lies at the heart of romantic aspiration In the 19th century Emily Bronte depicted rom [...]


  • SPOILERS A beautiful and poetic story that could be described in many ways 1 It was historical fiction based on a true story of the slaughter of a Northern Scottish Village and almost all of its people ordered by a control hungry horrible king in the late 1600 s 2 It is the conversion story of a preacher who based his world around the law, the scriptures, the biases of his people at the time The conversion takes place while he is interviewing a witch in prison who is about to be burned for her c [...]


  • If I hadn t read this book, I would never have imagined that there was still persecution of witches in late 17th century Great Britain, the practice of which was only banned from 1735 with the introduction of the Witchcraft Act.The story is a gripping one that recounts the political massacre of Glencoe in February 1692, told through an imprisoned woman who was condemned as a witch and was waiting to be burned, and who had earlier managed to save many lives in Glencoe Her only audience was a reve [...]


  • I may have finished reading Corrag weeks ago, I may have read five other very different types of stories since then, but I am still in the highlands and with Corrag and Charles Susan Fletcher immediately transported me so thoroughly to a time and place, to ways of thinking and perceiving they are, for the time being, a part of me.Fletcher sets up the novel with alternating chapters told by Corrag, a young woman accused of witchcraft I wait for it death My own, fiery one and by Charles, a Reveren [...]


  • This book has practically left me speechless, but I ll do my best luminous, poetic, profound, lush, divinely crafted sentences that left me in awe, a heroine so lovely and courageous that she lingers on in my imagination Simply the best book I ve read in recent memory, and I have read some terrific books.The novel is based on a real character and real events the Glencoe massacre in the Scottish Highlands in the late 1600s The novel s structure alternates between Corrag telling her story to a pri [...]


  • In chapter 2 of Book 2 I have been tempted by Corrag for years I finally decided to take the plunge I like the Scottish dialect I like the feel of the highlands and nature as it is described by simple people I like figuring out who are on each side there is King William of Orange and King James and the Jacobites And where is Corrag in the middle of all this I am listening, as usual The Scottish dialect of the narrator Caroline Guthrie further enhances the atmosphere.but you have to listen carefu [...]


  • 4 stars I really liked it Warning for animal death though The perfect ending of this book left me with tears in my eyes The ending is fabulous.The format of this book is unusual Corrag tells her story about her childhood and what she knows about the Glencoe Massacre to Charles Leslie in what amounts to a series of monologues we hear Charles voice through letters he writes to his wife This worked really well in audio format My favorite part of this book was the growing friendship between Corrag a [...]


  • This is a very special book, one which some would say I don t know where to start my review but I do , I know because Corrag is an exceptional character who has emptied her heart in the telling of this story and in doing so she has filled mine to the brim.This is probably the most heart filling book I ve ever read, Corrag will speak to your soul , if like me you love books that are atmospheric, lyrical, poetic I want to go back to the beginning and re read this straight away, I want to see in my [...]


  • Rarely does a book bewitch pardon the pun and mesmorise me quite so much as this one It is truly one of the most beautiful and lyrical books I have ever read.The story is narrated by Corrag, a 16 year old girl who is awaiting being burned at the stake for being a witch in 17th century Scotland Corrag is visited in jail by Charles Leslie, an Irish Jacobite who wants to prove that the recent massacre in Glencoe was the work of the soldiers under William of Orange Corrag is English and has run away [...]



  • No doubt some readers will be put off by the rather challenging style and language used by the author in this novel, Corrag I myself have issues with some books because of it For whatever reason, I found it easy to get into the story from the opening pages, and for my brain to adapt to the author s prose style The language has been cast in a somewhat antique style, with archaic words, stilted phrases and awkward sentence structures in some passages Because I was captivated by the story I found t [...]


  • Best novel I ve read this year 2015 Absolutely powerful, beautiful and engaging.A keeper for my shelves and a later re read.


  • 3.5 stars It was really good.Based loosely on actual events and people surrounding the Massacre of the MacDonald clan of Glencoe in 1692, this beautifully written book also explores faith, love, and those small moments in life that change us irrevocably The Glencoe Massacre involved a government ordered killing of the MacDonald clan, including the women and children, and was sprung into action while they stayed with the MacDonalds, who were hosting them as friends.The author uses two narrators, [...]


  • Basic plot run down after witnessing the events at the Massacre at Glencoe, Corrag is accused of witchcraft and imprisoned Irish minister and secret Jacobite Charles Leslie comes to interview her in hopes of finding proof that King William was truly behind the massacre The narrative is told mostly from Corrag s point of view as she recounts her life before and leading up to the events at Glencoe This alternates with Leslie s point of view as he writes home to his wife in Ireland recounting his r [...]


  • 4.5 stars I grew up knowing that I had MacDonald ancestry and that the Campbells had committed a heinous deed against us in Glencoe in 1692 The Campbells are coming Ho Ro Ho Ro I wasn t aware of the full story until I read Witch Light why two words when it s one in the book , also published as Corrag I loved the rhythm of the narration, the insight into and love of nature, the fundamental kindness of the central character, Corrag Called a witch and sentenced to death, she is interviewed by Charl [...]

  • There is no devil Only the devilish ways in a man.Back in February, my partner took me to Scotland For a few days in late August and early September, Susan Fletcher took me back again Witch Light, or Corrag, as its alternatively known, tells the story of a wild young girl living in the Scottish Highlands in 1692 Learning everything from her Mother, Corrag heals with plants and herbs, and leads a beautiful, simple life amongst nature and the elements But this simplicity gets Corrag labelled as a [...]


  • Je ne pensais pas au d part finir ce livre comme tant un coup de coeur Mais on se laisse rapidement emporter par l criture po tique et vrai de l auteur Ses tr s belles descriptions des paysages cossais nous font voyager depuis notre fauteuil Je me suis vite attach Corrag et sa vision du monde qui nous entoure Bref un tr s joli livre sur l Ecosse, son histoire et la sorcellerie qui nous fait appr cier les petites choses et beaut s de la nature.



  • I would hesitate to say this novel falls under the category of historical fiction just my opinion Yes historical figures such as King William III and the deposed King James II are mentioned The Glencoe massacre I am not sure if that s what the event is referred to by people from the Highlands but from what I have come to understand it was a massacre is described by the narrator but it s easy for the reader to forget they are reading something historical throughout the course of the noel I did no [...]


  • The writing in the book is wonderful Fletcher does have a lyrical voice But.Actually, BUT and I never thought I would say this about a book that is 386 pages the book is too blasted long.I swear, after I got about halfway in, I just wanted the Glencoe masscare to start then I felt guilty.Corrag is arrigned as a witch and tells her tale to an Irishman The descriptions are lovely, but there is way too much padding in the novel I found myself interested about Lesile than about Corrag because his l [...]


  • Scotland in the late 1600s was divided those who supported King William and those who supported King James The MacDonalds of Glencoe were Jacobites, supporters of King James, so when they were murdered in their beds, it was rud that the massacre was ordered by King William Corrag, a seventeen year old girl, supports neither king, but because she tried to warn the MacDonalds of the impending massacre, she is accused of witchcraft and condemned to burn at the stake Charles Leslie, an Irish Jacobit [...]

  • Sans oser l imaginer ce livre est un coup de coeur On ne passe pas c t des magnifiques descriptions de la nature cossaise, le language po tique de la narratrice est couper le souffle Sans oublier le cocktail compl tement addictif de ce qui fait un bon roman qui parle de sorcellerie, de l gendes


  • I listened to the audio version of this book and greatly enjoyed it If I ve said it once, I ve said it a million times Rosalyn Landor is simply the best book narrator ever Because this story was based on actual historical events, I found it even fascinating because I learned about a piece of Scottish history that I hadn t heard of before not that I know a lot about Scotland s history But I do like learning about any historical event Also, oddly enough, I can highly identify with being branded a [...]


  • Wow, just wow Corrag is truly an incredible piece of writing Sometimes I struggle with reviews for books that knock my literary socks off, so instead of gushing and babbling I ll be brief Seldom has character voice been written in such a unique, perfectly compelling way Fletcher takes the reader inside her characters minds and hearts with prose that s beautifully poetic, luminous, and wise An amazing, memorable book


  • This is a beautifully written, up close and personal look at a real historical tragedy the Massacre at Glencoe, Scotland, in 1692 You can read other sources for a plot summary Let me just say that it s filled with the beauty and sadness of all life Moving, lovely, a book with great heart, a unique point of view, and glorious prose.
