Just as she does every year, Lisbeth travels to spend Christmas with her grandmother Olga, since her parents are too busy to celebrate with her. Lisbeth likes spending the holidays with her granny. Unlike most people, Olga doesn't mind that the little girl is always finishing people's sentences for them. Then there's her little friend Edward, the next door neighbour who especially appreciates Lisbeth's gift, because his stutter makes it hard for him to finish sentence on his own. One day, the two friends go play in the attic, where Lisbeth discovers a mysterious old book. Her grandmother is furious when she finds out and takes the book away from her, which of course only makes our girl all the more curious to read it, and when she does, she's at first amazed to see it describes a lineage of unusual women going back to Lilith in 5,000 BC, who were all persecuted as witches. Amazement turns to astonishment when she finds pages describing her own grandmother, and then to shock when she turns to read the last pages. ( )

Book description
Cette année encore, Lisbeth va passer les vacances de Noël chez sa grand-mère Olga. Lisbeth se réjouit de la retrouver car c’est la seule personne à ne pas être exaspérée par sa manie de terminer les phrases des autres… avant qu’ils ne les aient prononcées. Elle pense même que c’est un don. La seule ? Pas tout à fait. Edward, le petit voisin bègue de chez sa grand-mère a le béguin pour la jolie Lisbeth…Un après-midi où Lisbeth et Edward explorent le grenier à la recherche d’un livre de botanique, ils tombent sur un ouvrage étrange et poussiéreux… En le feuilletant, Lisbeth découvre une galerie de portrait de femmes au destin hors du commun, une généalogie de femmes qui ont été persécutées parce qu’elles étaient différentes : un grimoire de sorcières ! En tournant les pages, Lisbeth n’en croit pas ses yeux : il est dit que sa grand-mère Olga serait une sorcière (« N’importe quoi ! ») Mais à la page suivante, la fillette est prise de stupeur : elle découvre un portrait d’elle au milieu d’une nuée de corbeaux.« C’est ridicule ! » dit Lisbeth en refermant rageusement le grimoire. Comment sa grand-mère peut-elle croire à de telles sornettes ? Mais la petite fille n’est pas au bout de ses surprises…
