Review: The Witch's Trinity: A Novel
The Witch's Trinity: A Novel by Erika Mailman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Basic damned if you do, damned if you don't Christianity vs. paganism witch story. The setting is a little different than most (16th century Germany, with no mention of the Reformation) and the accused woman does</> see some pretty strange things, and just when the ending seems to be going the way most of these stories go, there's a slight twist back to the hysterics that made these events possible. The epigraphical use of the Catholic church's Malleus Maleficarum as well as having the investigating friar use the book adds some historical weight.
