Review: The Witch’s Trinity | Erika Mailman

I was able to do a lot of reading on the plane to and from Fiji, and I finished The Witch’s Trinity on the way home to Melbourne.


This book is set in Germany in the 1500’s during a period of great famine. It is about a woman who is caught up in a ‘witch hunt’ and it was unfortunately very easy to see how the ‘witch hunt’ could get completely out of control.

The book was a little confronting at times, but I really enjoyed reading about the day to day chores and way of life during this period. I also found it interesting to see how paganism, superstition and religion were practiced by the people in the village.

I really enjoyed this book.

My rating = ****

That’s my four bucks!
