This is a book about a modern day witch with a cat... all of the witches have familiars of some type... and I think they could communicate with their familiars, but not sure. I think the witch, or one of the main witches was named Amanda.

The cover of the book has a close up of a black cat's face, you can pretty much only see it's eyes.

There is also a mean witch in the past... maybe 1800s who is doing some evil magic and the local authorities are on to her... she does some magic that makes her switch places with the modern day witch.

The modern day witch then has to deal with all the terrible things that the mean witch from the past did.. I think there is some romance at the point as well.

I read this book in the mid 90s and loved it... I think the name was "Witches" but I've tried to find a book by that name that matches what I remember and have failed. I am pretty sure the author was a woman... maybe Catherine or Elizabeth... no clue really... I could be completely wrong with the names, it's been a long time.

Thanks A LOT!

A couple of possibles:

Witches, by Kathryn Meyer Griffith, Pinnacle 2000 "A tale of a white witch or more commonly known as a "good witch" that must come out of hiding to help stop impending doom! White Witch Amanda Givens must stop a coven of evil witches set on bringing the witch Rachel Coxe back to life to wreak her revenge."

Cat Magic, by Whitley Streiber, Tor 1987 "Some of the people in Maywell, NJ are witches. Amanda is not a witch, yet! But she might become one if she is allowed to live long enough. Poetic, moving and terrifying, a tale of modern witchcraft."
