did not like it

Sometimes tedious quasi-fantasy of white witch Elizabeth, under various nicknames, her lonely search for love, and flight from evil. I skipped dull dry historical research on wicca, herbal healing, black plague, witch-hunts, Jack the Ripper, and the muddy battlefields of France in WWI.

Bess' mother, the village healer, asks a neighboring rapist warlock to help heal her daughter from bubonic plague in 1628. But when devilish imps surround her, witnesses hang her for witchcraft. Wicked Gideon reappears disguised in other bodies at historically epic times, to threaten now immortal Bess, and murder bystanders. At last, he jeopardizes her present-day apprentice, and the resulting confrontation is final.
