The took a while to read, i am used to whizing through a book. But the book was based on the witch trial in england i believe. The book is based on religions of the sevententh century. This was a time when the Catholics where not allowed to practice anymore and if you did, you were presumed a witch. You were expected to embrace the new religion a forget your old faith.
What came to light through this book to me was that at one time people viewed Catholic practices to be magic with our wine turning to blood and the bread turning to the body of Christ. And that prayers could really heal. It was a great history lesson.
