Review of 'The Once and Future Witches' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

This is not a soft book. This book tugs at the parts of me that survived abusive family, exboyfriends, cancer... That has lost jobs for speaking up against "those jokes".

I adored it. It's about the power women (and yes this book means ALL WOMEN) have when they come together against their oppressor.

I think I need to go read it again...
