The best and most powerful book about the Pendle Witches I have ever read. Living just across the Lancashire Border I am familiar with the story of Chattox and Demdike and the history of the Pendle Witches. But this book has taken me to places I could never have imagined. I was very graphically and realistically drawn into their century, into the brooding landscape of Pendle Hill, into the lives and circumstances of those women, and I felt every one of their emotion and pain and anguish right to the bitter end. If you only ever read one book about the Pendle Witches - let it be this one. You will not be disappointed.
