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.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Mum's favourite book 7 Jan 2013
By E Jones
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best novels ever written. 6 July 2002
By A Customer
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!
