review 1: Having read most of Jeanette Winterson's other novels, this was very different than the writing I had become accustomed to. There was less importance on the author's part for her poetic writing and more concentration on the very disturbing story. Yet, even with telling a story ab...

review 1: This genre bending author allows us not only into her tormented world but also shares her healing process. Emphasizing the power of language to bolster, heal and contain experience -difficult experience, Winterson describes the fallout from her adoption into poverty where she is ...

review 1: This will not be a book for everyone. Loosely based on the Pendle Witch Trials in Lancaster in 1612 Winterson carefully orchestrates a tale of horror as to the treatment of women and people at a time when King and God were confusing figures of power with the authority to do almo...

review 1: I always like to enjoy reading a children's or YA novel from time to time and this was a good choice.Perhaps not quite as enjoyable as it's predecessor, Tanglewreck, but it is a worthy read. I found the first half of the book stronger than the second but any fans of young adult f...
