DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions herein are of my own and are not swayed by the author or the publishing company.

Synopsis from Amazon:
Bryna Gilchrist thought her worst nightmare was burying her husband until she was accused of Witchcraft. Secluded in the Corwins' dungeons, she will have to enlist the help of her new lover Bartholomew to escape from Judge John Corwin's grasp.

I love short stories, I don't know if I've told you all that yet or not. It's just so satisfying to me to start a book and finish it within the first hour. Especially if it's a well-written book that leaves no question unanswered. Kimberly definitely has done her duty as an author with this short story in setting up a horrifying time period in where anyone could be accused of Witchcraft for the most mundane actions.
I came to love Bryna, and her small little family. I even found myself missing her husband along with her. Her best friend...well. I don't have much to say about that except for the fact that you can't trust anyone to back you up when you actually need it. I found myself so frustrated with what Bryna had to go through after her doting husband passed away. Especially with people who were trying to force her into a relationship on the same day her husband was buried. I guess it was really like that back then, though. Being a widow wasn't the best thing to happen to someone who owned a lot of land back then, and a lot of men would have jumped at that opportunity.
All in all, this was a great short story and I would love to read more of Kimberly's writing!
