Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Wicca need not be a solitary experience or a trivialized group ritual. A. J. Drew believes that couples can revitalize this ancient practice, elevating it above self-conscious public displays. Emphasizing experiential aspects of Wicca, he discusses how couples can bring the sanctity of this pre-Christian practice into their own lives.

    I cried almost cover to cover - thank you Mr. Drew

    I recieved a review copy at my book store today. Summer is always slow, so I spent the day reading Drew's latest book. Reading and crying that is. The dedication to Tempest Smith stopped my heart mid beat. I could imagine what it feels like to blame yourself for the death of someone so young and bright, as the author does. At the end, I thought I had finished crying. Then I came to his final words, where he admits the pain of being without a partner and casts his hopes to the universe hoping for return. I felt like I had been swept off my feet with a sincerity that I have never felt before. The tears started again. Speaking as the owner of a small Wiccan book store, I think this book will change not only the face but the soul of Wicca forever!
