#1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory weaves an unforgettable tale of a young woman’s sorcery and desire in Henry VIII’s England, where magic, lust, and power are forever intertwined. Growing up as an abandoned outcast on the moors, young Alys’ only company is her cruel foster mother, Morach, the local wise woman who is whispered to practice the dark arts. Alys joins a nunnery to escape the poverty and loneliness she has felt all her life, but all too soon her sanctuary is destroyed. King Henry VIII’s followers burn the holy place to the ground, and Alys only just manages to escape with her life, haunted by the screams of her sisters as they burned to death. She finds work in a castle not far from where she grew up as an old lord’s scribe, where she falls obsessively in love with his son Hugo. But Hugo is already married to a proud woman named Catherine. Driven to desperation by her desire, she summons the most dangerous powers Morach taught her, but quickly the passionate triangle of Alys, Hugo, and Catherine begins to explode, launching them into uncharted sexual waters. The magic Alys has conjured now has a life of its own—a life that is horrifyingly and disastrously out of control. Is she a witch? Since heresy means the stake, and witchcraft the rope, Alys is in mortal danger, treading a perilous path between her faith and her own power.

Heywood's title-character, alternatively dismissed as a charlatan or cursed as an 'enchantress, sorceress and she-devil', outsmarts gullible citizens and rakish gentlemen alike in this exuberant city comedy, which winds its way through the colourful 'variety and rarity' of Cheapside and the Exchange to reach a festive conclusion in Hoxton. Cross-dressing and disguise add to the intrigue while drawing our attention to controversial issues of class conflict and female (in)subordination.

In this compilation of 58 short (10-line) poems, the poet skillfully describes those qualities of heart, mind and action that characterize the awakening of "the Feminine" within the human person. As the Feminine is awakened in both man and woman, the "Mother Spirit" emerges in each one, highlighted by a display of nurturing, kindness, gentleness, generosity, cooperation, and forgiveness of self and others. The Way of the Wise Woman is a catalog of such "Feminine" virtues and behaviors and a series of contemplations to be studied, prayed and enjoyed for their poetic beauty. Not a book for women only! In fact this is a book for all weary pilgrims on the Path of spirit, particularly those who lament that, after long years of hard work or practice the "breakthrough" still eludes. Both women and men are imprisoned by a judgmental "god" of righteousness and vengeance leading to a hardness of heart. The Way of the Wise Woman is dedicated to liberating its readers from this inner tyranny. As a training-manual of sorts, the poems are far from sweet whisperings, however. The Feminine, as the poet proclaims, is also fierce, strong, ruthlessly honest, and confrontive as well as supportive. This collection may well serve to guide the seeker in self-examination as the poems encourage a refined vision of "what is," of "what is possible," and a growing sense of the presence and attention needed to enter the halls of wisdom. Such training as the book presents seems critical in a social and political climate distinguished by a tragic dissociation from the heart and a growing alienation from the mother-wisdom of the earth. No other book of poetry in the American canon undertakes to describe this process in poetic form. The effect of reading these individual sutras (as the poet calls them) is cumulative, and the book as a whole is ideal material for a contemplative study group or prayer or circle. The author writes from long personal study and experience. His years of discipleship within religious schools of esoteric knowledge, allows him to share what has been gained and lost from following a Path. The inner struggles of this type of work on self are rendered with raw precision, while being beautifully delineated in these poems. Any reader will benefit from the fruits of understanding the poet has gained from these struggles.
