February is for romance… and witches!
This month, our featured book the bewitching young adult romance, Disenchanted by Leigh Goff. Today, Leigh introduces us to her main character, Sophie Goodchild. Take it away, Leigh!
In Disenchanted, Sophie Goodchild is a sixteen-year-old half-witch, living with her eccentric aunt in the small town of Wethersfield, Connecticut—the sight of the first American Witch Trials. She is descended from a powerful black witch, the very real Rebecca Greensmith, but she struggles with her erratic white magic while dealing with a snarky group of full-blooded witches known as the Glitterati, who love to make Sophie feel like she is less than they are.
Sophie is a natural beauty with long, untamed waves of sable-colored hair, eyes the color of dark blue sapphires, and heart-shaped lips. More importantly, she is beautiful on the inside, although she hides it well behind her impatience and impetuousness, which makes her very relatable.
It is those heart-strong characteristics that lead her into trouble and, since she is ruled by her heart, she is all in once she finds trouble like a forbidden first love. She is fiercely loyal, determined, and fearless and there is nothing she would not do or sacrifice for her loved ones, especially when she learns of the true love curse her ancestor cast on the Mather family.
When Judge Mather, a descendant of the reverend who condemned Sophie’s ancestor to hang, finds out his charming son, who has recently returned to Wethersfield with a sexy British accent and a face that could melt a black witch’s heart, has fallen hard for Sophie, life in Wethersfield becomes more dangerous for the beautiful half-witch. Dark secrets come to light and impossible choices are made as Sophie sacrifices everything, including her soul to save her true love.
