Good Friday 1612. Pendle Hill.
A mysterious gathering of thirteen people is interrupted by a local magistrate. Is it a witches' Sabbat?
In Lancaster Castle two notorious witches await trial and certain death, while the beautiful and wealthy Alice Nutter rides to their defence.
Elsewhere a starved child lurks. And a Jesuit priest and former Gunpowder plotter makes his way from France to a place he believes will offer him sanctuary.
But will it? And how safe can anyone be in Witch Country?

Journal Entry 5 by kittiwake at Nottingham, Nottinghamshire United Kingdom on Sunday, April 05, 2015
Is that him? The Jesuit?
Yes.
Shall we take him?
Follow him.
where will he go?
to Lancashire, where his home is. To Pendle Forest, where his heart is.


In Lancashire in 1612, the authorities were on the hunt for Catholic traitors as well as for witches, and in Jeanette Winterson's version of the story, magic is real and the Pendle witches include former colleagues of Doctor John Dee as well as the poverty-stricken and deluded.

This novella was published by Hammer, and I found the scenes of rape and torture genuinely horrific.
