Description

Marion Zimmer Bradley, one of the most beloved and praised fantasy storytellers of our time, has once again written a compelling and powerful novel with larger-than-life characters.
Winter Musgrave's past is largely blank, her memories missing or tissue-thin. She seem to be possessed—objects shatter when she passes, the corpses of animal appear on her doorstep. And she has the terrible feeling that something horrible happened in her empty past—results of which are now haunting her with unbridled fury.
Seeking help, Winter turns to Truth Jourdemayne and learns that the key to unlocking her lost memories lies within herself—and in the magickal circle of friends in college. But the circle was broken long ago. Winter must reconstruct it is she is to save her life.
Not just the story of a woman's search for her missing past, Witchlight is a powerful novel of contemporary fantasy that pulls readers in and hold them until the final page. Anyone who loves good contemporary fiction will devour Witchlight.

        September 2, 1996
        Fans of Bradley's popular Darkover series and The Mists of Avalon will recognize familiar plot elements in this contemporary fantasy quest, a successor to Ghostlight (1995). Heroine Winter Musgrave, 36, awakens terrified one morning in a mysterious old rural New York farmhouse, unable to recall more than flashes of her former life as a Manhattan stockbroker. Seeking relief from malevolent paranormal phenomena that she seems to be causing, Winter approaches Truth Jourdemayne, a psychic researcher who appeared in Ghostlight, for help. With Truth's guidance, Winter gradually regains her memory and faces horrors within and without as she crisscrosses the country to track down the members of her college amateur magical circle. By reforging the group's spiritual bonds, Winter hopes to exorcise her demons and to save her lover. Bradley poses insights into modern deviltry--the psychological consequences of abortion, child and spouse abuse; dysfunctional families; stress-filled urban life--by implicitly contrasting them with the traditional, spirituality balanced Celtic Otherworld, said to coexist with concrete reality. Lacking the absorbing history and environment of Arthurian legend or of the alien planet Darkover, however, Winter's struggle to come of age as a psychic woman warrior lacks vigor, though Bradley still can spin a wicked web of tangled relationships and motivations.

        In yet another masterful story, Bradley gives us Winter Musgrave, a young woman who cannot remember her past and seeks to reconstruct her blank life with the aid of old friends. This excellent novel of self-discovery belongs in most sf collections of contemporary magic. [Previewd in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/96.]

        September 1, 1996
        Bradley gives us another modern gothic yarn, similar to her "Ghostlight" and involving some of the same characters without, however, actually being a sequel. Winter Musgrave is being haunted by vague, incomplete memories of a past in which she suspects something horrible happened. From the earlier book, Truth Jourdemayne comes to Winter's rescue, establishing that Winter must reconstruct a long-gone magical circle of college friends to fully restore her memories. This well-told tale full of both the virtues and the faults of the gothic genre, modernized or not, demands high tolerance for the New Age, since both its mythic basis and its setting involve New Age elements. Bradley's dedicated fans and those who liked "Ghostlight" will meet that demand and make their own--to read "Witchlight."
