About the Author

Willow Winsham brings readers regular tales of witches and witchcraft at her blog, The Witch, the Weird and the Wonderful. Combining a passion for research and history with a love of storytelling, she dedicates her time to investigating some of the most intriguing stories from the history of the British Isles. When she isn't digging out tantalising historical titbits or tracing elusive family members, she is busy writing historical fiction and home educating her two children.


Reads almost like a screenplay for a major TV series! Case studies of various "witches" from the middle ages to the last century, this book examines in great detail the women whose lives were under investigation for practices that were - and are - considered wrong by the authorities. A history book that looks at real people in the context of an almost inquisition-like persecution. Fantastic.--Books Monthly
"Willow Winsham has made full and good use of the sources available, from trial documents and contemporary pamphlets to parish and other documents. Usually these witch stories are mentioned in passing, often with little more detail than a name and place and date. Even when the account is longer and more detailed, it is rare to get a real feel for the people, time and place. Willow Winsham puts flesh on eleven cases, brining these eleven women to life, presenting their biographies. Winsham is a solid researcher and capable writer who tells her stories in their proper social and historical context."--Ripperologist
