Of Sorrow and SuchXistence of the supernatural in their midst any longer; Gideon and her like are captured bound for torture and a fiery endShould Gideon give up her sisters in return for a uick death Or can she turn the situation to her advantagePRAISE FOR OF SORROW AND SUCH Of Sorrow and Such takes you to dark unsettling places Angela Slatter's magic is ea Much like Valente's stories I came by Slatter's by coincidence and recommendation Yes I love stories about witches the ones about great magic spells as much as ones about women who simply know how to heal with plants and are hunted for it The ones I love most fall somewhere in between like this oneWe meet Patience Gideon a witch She can use all sorts of herbs for abortions for healing for killing and mixes those herbs for things that need actual magic There are many witches in this world some of them even shapeshifters Some pass by Patience's cottage and stay a few days to be safe Always in exchange for knowledgeThe village where she lives knows at least of some of her skills and while they are all good Christians except for the other witches living there secretly they don't move against herBut when a young shapeshifter is stupid enough to get caught priests and other good people call for bloodHangings burnings beatings rape witches or women unable to give their husbands what they want there are many reasons for these women to be mistreatedI started reading about actual witch hunts and trials because I was fascinated of the blend between superstition advanced for the standards back then medicine and tales of independent women refusing to bow to convention Many preferred to die standing than live kneeling and I get itThis book represents just such women without vilifying all men There is no generalization here Some women witches even are stupid or treacherous or egocentric some men are rapists and worse other women feel a certain sisterhood or just want to get by and other men are sweet and honest Most are several things at once Just like real peopleSeeing the women here being afraid but also smart and creative in getting by living their day to day lives protecting themselves spiced with the gift some of them have; seeing the betrayal but also the sisterhood practically feeling the coziness of Patience's kitchen smelling the flowers in the garden and the herbs in the forest not every author can breathe life into their tales in such a wayThe author's writing style is beautiful in an unassuming way descriptive and vivid The people as I said are all real and tragic figures or inspiring characters The audiobook's narration perfectly matches the humble writing style This has therefore definitely not been the last story by this author I've read and I need to get my hands on the paperback edition
