More About the Author

Hilda Lewis was born in London. She edited her school and college magazines and taught in London for a time. Married, with one son, she and her husband lived in Nottingham, where Professor Lewis was a member of the University. She lived a quiet life in the beautiful precincts of the University where she devoted a great deal of her time to reading and writing as well as to running her home.

She wrote a number of novels for adults as well as the script for the film Mandy. She had always been interested in writing for children and considered that a children's book needs as much, if not more, care than an adult novel.

Hilda Lewis died in 1974.

This is my mum's favourite book and she loaned her much read copy to someone & it was never returned so she was delighted to get this for Christmas. A very unusual storyline but an interesting idea of what being a witch (or not) would have meant all those years ago. A book that leaves you thinking.

I have read this novel (4) times, you could say I liked it quite a lot. It is a story of a woman who sold her soul and is now wandering in limbo. And the priest who is trying to bring her back to God. It is a wonderful story that kept me turning the pages until they literally fell out of the book!

I enjoyed reading Hilda Lewis' take on the Bottesford Witches, although I found the style somewhat dated. I applaud her scholarship with regard to the historical research. Clearly she also studied the history of witchcraft, but she dwells too much on the more sensational aspects. I found this weakened my belief in the characters and particularly in the fate of Philippa Flower, but the relationship between Joan Flower and the priest is well sustained.

Excellent tale, historical basis. A view of rural life in Bottesford during the witch mania days. Parts of the village still recognisable today despite rampant building of modern housing estates all around the original village.
