Diary of a Witch -- In 2012, in Carmunnock, Scotland, Hugh and Fiona Wallace were renovating their 16th century farmhouse. Preserved in a mahogany box, the following diary was discovered buried in the walls; the book is printed as found.
Set in the early 17th century, Diary of a Witch is a raw and haunting novel based on a four hundred year old manuscript discovered in 2012 buried in the walls of a Scottish farmhouse. The secret diary of Elspeth MacGregor, a midwife accused of being a witch, is the first female chronicle of “The Burning Times.” Imprisoned in a frigid, rat-infested tolbooth in Kilmarnock, Scotland, Elspeth MacGregor confesses a story untold in the annals of time: the true story of midwives, healers, herbalists and common women who practiced the "old religion," revered the earth, and exulted in their sexuality. In the graveyard of her filthy cell, a breathless hope sings through Elspeth’s words—will she escape her fate?
