Jeanette Winterson - The Daylight Gate (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780099561835
Sunday Times Bestseller.
The Forest of Pendle used to be a hunting ground, but some say that the hill is the hunter - alive in its black-and-green coat cropped like an animal pelt.
Good Friday, 1612.
Two notorious witches await trial and certain death in Lancaster Castle, whilst a small group gathers in secret protest. Into this group the self-made Alice Nutter stakes her claim and swears to fight against the rule of fear.
But what is Alice's connection to these witches?
What is magic if not power, and what will happen to the women who possess it?

'Utterly compulsive' - Daily Telegraph.
'A gripping gothic read' - Sarah Hall, Guardian.
'So seductive . . . I was hooked' - Independent.
'This is a dazzling book. Winterson is a deft storyteller and a writer of wonderful economy. It is one of the very few contemporary novels that I actually wished were longer.' - Literary Review.
'I read this directly after having finished another novel on the same topic, and Winterson's was so much better. Her writing is vivid - I read it in one sitting through the night (and felt a bit spooked at times!) Well researched, beautiful and horrifying at the same time.' - Amazon Review.
