"Set in France in the sixteenth century, The Burning Times is an unrelenting examination of the cruelty and injustice committed against women through all ages and the courage some women have found to speak out."

I still am not quite sure why I picked this book up, but it was a good story of the injustices commited in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. I don't believe the story that THOUSANDS of women and children were killed in the Burning Times, but I have no doubt there were hundreds, and that most of them were midwives and healers. I know there are witches in the world, and I am proud to count myself one of them -- we do no harm (for the most part) --
