really liked it

Read from September 14 to 22, 2010

A quick read with a lot of information. This book is oft-quoted, so I've read many parts of it in other places, but I am glad that I've now read it straight from the source. I love the way that she tied together the witch trials, the attack on midwifery and lay healers, and the emergence of nursing. I found it well worth the time spent!
