Witches, Midwives & Nurses: A History of Women Healers | Barbara Ehrenreich, Deirdre English
post image


This tiny (67 page) book discusses the theory that witches were the predecessors to midwives and nurses. I have the first edition, published in 1973. There is a second edition that mentions errors in their research. As a nurse and a green witch I couldn‘t pass this one up when I saw it for sale at the Brooklyn Book Festival.

I‘m drawing a blank on a good book on my shelves for #ancestors, but this Goodreads find may do the trick. From the description, it looks like it has potential. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I can't resist a good “ghost“ story. This was a spur of the moment pick at my library in 2010, and I've been a fan of Due's ever since.

From the SFF180 YouTube book summary:
A series of vividly colored quilts made by a slave woman in the 1840s exert a powerful paranormal influence upon generations of artists and admirers in a small Maryland village. But is there something deeper and more sinister going on?
This was the most recent selection in SFF180's annual 12 days of Halloween recommendations & I always check them out because 1) they are under the radar selections & 👇

vivastory 2) Thomas has the best radio voice of any booktuber. I don't know much about his background, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out he had spent time on radio. He also carefully presents his reviews & videos. #ancestors #screamathonphotochallenge @4thhouseontheleft 2mo

There are plenty of #Bones of #Ancestors uncovered here in the seventh installment of the Sigma Force series! It‘s an exciting addition with set up for more adventure ahead! My favorite new character? An Australian Cattle Dog who steals the show! #ChillingPhotoChallenge #TeamStoker 11pts #ScreanathonPhotoChallenge #DogsOfLitsy

I found out about this series last year during #screamathon when I read Paperbacks from Hell. It follows a family through all sorts of creepy events and is definitely worth the read if you enjoy gothic horror.

NikkiRobson73 Awesome series ! I‘ve read it twice! (edited) 2mo
overtheedge Hope I can find this....love gothic horror!! 2mo
Addison_Reads @overtheedge There's a collected volume that's easier to find than the individual paperbacks. I just liked look of the old ones. I found mine on thriftbooks.com. 2mo

This is definitely the book i thought of for today‘s #ancestors #screamathonphotochallenge prompt.

The scariest thing about this book is that it‘s true.
