    This is one read that is a "MUST" for those who have questions or always wondered about Wicca.

    All I can say is that this is a VERY "to the point" read as well as very well researched properly with the authors knowledge and I feel it is as good as it gets for this day and era that we are in. Check this book out. It speaks nothing but the TRUTH about the subject. Find out for yourselves. Don't just take my word for it. Blessed be.

    Wicca is a religion that many open minded people have embraced and follow

    Reviewed by Brenda B. for Readers Favorite

    Debunking the myths about Wicca, Magick and all of the related misnomers of the religion, authors Dayna Winters, Patricia Gardner and Angela Kaufman go to great lengths to explain in terms that are easily understood. From the earliest times to present, the reader is guided through traditions, taboos, rituals, spiritual communication, healing and more.

    Illustrations aid in visualizing the information being conveyed. Witches, the reader will find, are found in all walks of life; they are professionals, students, members of the family, friends.

    The point is made throughout the chapters that Wicca is a religion that many open minded people have embraced and follow; at the same time, many face intolerance and even discrimination. Because of this, a number have chosen to keep their beliefs to themselves to avoid ridicule and even, in some rare cases, hatred from those who do not understand.

    The end of the book is filled with great information on additional reading material, an informative glossary, end notes and bibliography. To complete the lesson, the authors have each created a page telling the reader about themselves...quite an impressive trio of biographies, indeed!

    What first caught my eye was the beautiful cover art. I found myself focused on each piece of the cover (it is that thought-provoking).

    Having zero interaction (to the best of my knowledge, anyway) with the Wicca religion, I found each chapter interesting and educational. My favorite part was the myths and truths. It was fascinating to read the different perspectives, followed by the in depth explanations.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the religion or perhaps even just curious.
