i received this book as part of the early reviewer's program at library thing. first let me say that i enjoy reading about the 1600s, and witchcraft and was looking forward to losing myself in corrag. i even liked the title (cora, her mom + "hag" or witch...clever.) however, the book bored me to tears. i didn't like the style of writing, all monologue and rambling, total stream of consciousness about not much at all. i did enjoy charles' letters to his wife, but it wasn't enough to save it for me. i seem to be in the minority; maybe it's just the author's style that i can't get past.
