What is Always a Witch about? The Plot
Always a Witch aka Siempre Bruja is a reconstruction novel Yo, Bruja by Isidora Chacón. Carmen, a 19-year-old girl, who lives in the 17th century Cartagena is forced to time travel to 2019 Cartagena when she professes her love for her slave proprietor’s son.
Carmen was an African witch enslaved by the Colombians. She is accused of witchcraft and loving a white man when it is termed to be burned alive on a stake. Imprisoned and awaiting her execution, she takes on Aldemar’s offer (a wizard) to time travel in 2019. However, she cannot use her magic; otherwise, it would signal Lucien (the powerful evil wizard) of her location.
The series is not solely a teen-drama or a romantic comedy, it serves a fantasy world, a historical period, with such a hooking coming-of-age storyline.
