Mary Sharratt has succeeded in doing more than just writing another historical novel. She has wipe the grime from the window of time and set the reader back into the rural setting of Northern England during the midst of the religious and political upheaval that came at the end of the 16th and early 17th centuries as England pulled away from the Catholic Church. The reader can feel the character's breath coming off the very pages of the story as the pages turn in eagerness to see what the next page will bring to the plot of the story. This is a book worth adding to your permanent library.

A good story telling how people became known as witches and the consequences that occurred when they were charged as a witch. The story follows Elizabeth Southerns, known as Demdike, and her daughter and gradnchildren and the hard life that they lead just to survive. The plot revolves around the family and the many things they do to survive on a dily basis culminating into the charges of being witches and the subsequent trials. Anyone interested in the stories of witchcraft or just a great Halloween read would enjoy this book. I would definately consider other books by this author and would recommend it for a book club discussion. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

    Good Historical Read

    Really enjoyed the historical perspective on the subject of "cunning folk" and the subsequent witch trial based in England. Although the first third of the book was slower, it laid good ground work for the rest of the novel. If you like historical novels this one will not disappoint.
