This book is perfect. It has corset-wearing pretty witches disguised as innocent perpetual girls, and boys who manipulate society to bend at their will. Set in the year 1900, Born Wicked is also full of a  plethora of spells to cast on the streets of old New England. What more could you ask for?

Cate Cahill and her sisters have a secret and it involves little murmurs that magically repair ripped dresses, turn things into new objects, and even control the environment around them. Witches are a taboo in a life where the Brotherhood, a band of conservative misogynistic men, keep girls silent and bound to traditionally female tasks.
Can Cate Cahill keep her “brewing” secret forever? Or will a spell slip out before she can retract it? She must maintain maintain the act if only for her primary suitor and long-time friend Paul.

Jessica Spotswood hit the mark. I enjoyed the witchery, the lingering glances of handsome Paul, and the paranoia spurred by the secret letter Cate receives. I highly recommend Born Wicked to devout witch-book fans or someone looking for a little historical fic fantasy, I loved it and I’m a rookie to all things spell-cast!
