Simple introduction to witchcraft. Beautiful and detailed description of the wheel of the year.
Review by Ghostlove
As a fairly traditional Pagan this was just a bit too 'fluffy' for my liking. I might give it to a teenager/young adult who was just starting to find their way in Earth traditions but it's certainly not a book for people who are well-trodden in their path.
