I'm not a Wicca practitioner but I've been looking for a book of seasonal celebrations based on the Wiccan wheel of the year. This has been a great read. It's clear this woman despises Christians, but other than her obvious disdain it's worth the read. I took off a star for her hatin'. Not that I don't understand it; I do. I'm not a religious person, myself (but was a religious studies major). I didn't like the jibes peppered throughout the book because it seems unnecessary and petty in light of all the great mythos she writes about. The *duh* factor of pagan origins to most Christian festivals speak for themselves without the snarky commentary.
That being said, this book, though informative, is very personable and colloquial. She writes of her own journey, her own process, her own poems, etc. This is a window to this woman's life in particular and a jumping off point for crafting your own rituals. I found it generally inspiring, humorous, practical, and [mostly] sensitive. If you're not interested in reading someone's story, forgo this title. But if, as in her opening, you are looking for a wise woman to sit down next to the fire with you and relay her successes and trials and anecdotes along her witchy path, this is the perfect book for you.
