☯ Full Synopsis : "This story of two girls trying to banish a witch is “full of wonderful fun, excitement, and humor” (Library Journal).

♥ Book Title : The Witch Hunts
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this revised edition, first published under the title of Witch, Wicce, Mother Goose, Robert Thurston explores the events of the witch hunts and the social and psychological factors which caused them. Increasingly negative images of women, revised judicial procedures and religious conflicts had their part to play in these strange times, as did ideas from sources as diverse as the Bible and folk beliefs. The Witch Hunts takes a long historical view of the witch persecutions, and puts into perspective the effects of fear and violence in even the most reasonable of societies."Article| Robert W. Thurston| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Trauma, Attachment and Family Permanence
☯ Full Synopsis : "Fostered and adopted children can present major challenges resulting from unresolved attachment issues and early traumatic experiences. In this much-needed book, the contributors provide a variety of complementary perspectives on the needs of these children and their families, focusing on ways of integrating attachment theory and developmental psychology into effective practice. Examining multiple aspects of work with children who are unable to live with their birth families, the book includes contributions on the assessment, preparation and support needs of children and families, attachment and the neurobiological effects of trauma, effective management of contact with birth families and developmental challenges in school settings. The use of creative arts therapies, alongside developmental reparenting strategies as part of a long-term attachment therapy `package', are explored in some detail. A fictionalised family, used as a working example throughout Part 2, brings practical interventions to life: illustrating the Family Futures' inclusive approach, where adoptive and foster parents become pivotal members of the therapeutic team. In addition, contributions from real-life user families illustrate some of the challenges they face and demonstrate how the developmental attachment-based approach has worked for them. Bringing together a rich and innovative selection of ideas for adoption and fostering practice across the disciplines, this book will be a valuable resource for all involved in supporting substitute families."Article| Caroline Archer| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Witch Finder General's Curse
☯ Full Synopsis : "Johnny the embalmer loved his job and loved to let the towns people know he did. When Johnny was a little boy, he would hang out with his father in their morgue which had been in the family for many generations. Johnny's father never let little Johnny in on the family's dirty little secret. Johnny's father felt that now was as good of a time as any to let Johnny in on the family’s dark past since he had reached the age where his father told him. “Johnny,” his father said sternly, “I've got something to tell you that has been a secret to only our family. Whatever I tell you doesn't leave this room, or there will be grave consequences. The only way that this can be official is by a contract signed with your blood and sealed in the family crypt. Then I will show you.” Johnny adored his father and was proud to be a part of a family that was full of mystery, but he was always curious about why there was a secret past. Johnny sliced his finger with the Witch finder General's knife. The knife was used on some of the witches when the Witch finder General would go on his hunts. In 17th century Europe, witchcraft was at its height. Johnny signed the agreement. "Now that this is taken care of,” said his father, “Let's head on down to the family crypt." Johnny's Father placed the signed agreement in an iron safe and locked the door. "Ok, Johnny, have a seat next to Bartholomew.” "Who is Bartholomew?” Johnny asked. "Well, let me tell you all about him. He’s an ancestor of our family that dates back to the 17th century. He was known as the Witch finder General during the reign of witches in central Europe. He was a good man that hated witches. It became an obsession of his until he met up with a witch named Sarah who he tortured, hung, and burned at the stake. The very knife that you cut your finger with is the same knife your ancestor Bartholomew used to cut witches to see what color their blood was. This story I'm about to tell you is a love story turned deadly."Article| Drac Von Stoller| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Just a Family History
☯ Full Synopsis : "Glenn Bowers ancestors came from England, Germany, and Scotland. They included farmers, sailors, teachers, merchants, ministers, poets and politicians. Many of them fought and died in wars. The varied themes of each chapter are common to previous generations of many American families. The storylines include the following persons: Wilhelm Bar (William Bower) came to America in 1833 with his five brothers because his parents were concerned about militarism in their native Wrrtemberg. He joined the 29th Ohio in the Civil War, as did 3 brothers, and he died in prison after being captured in their second battle. Margaret Polk Colburn was the first woman physician in Henry County, Indiana. Her husband had served with her father in Accomac, Virginia, during the Revolutionary War. Her ancestors included members of three notable Scottish clans: Maxwells, Polloks and Sempills; and her distant cousins included Confederate General and Episcopal Bishop Leonidas Polk and President James K. Polk. Margarets son, John R. Colburn, was born in North Carolina and became an abolitionist preacher in Missouri during the Civil War. His son served as an armed guard at the services. Ten year old Georg Trimmers mother and 159 other passengers on the Davy, as well as the captain and both mates, died during the 1738 voyage from Amsterdam to Philadelphia. Georg and his father Hans were among the 121 surviving passengers brought into port by the ships carpenter who had become the senior officer. Charles Wright wrote a book about the service of his regiment, the 81st Ohio, during the Civil War; he later served many years as town clerk for Oxford, Ohio, and briefly as mayor. General Israel Putnam was famous for his leadership and bravery during the French and Indian War as well as the Revolutionary War. In 1767 a pregnant Irish girl named Katie was waiting for Israel with her wedding dress when she heard of his marriage to a wealthy widow; she raised their son John in western Massachusetts. An older sister and brother of Samuel Jones were taken from their farm by Wyandot Indians in 1777; they survived separately for many years in captivity, and were both ultimately reunited with their family. Stephen Hopkins survived the 1609 shipwreck of the Sea Venture on its way to Jamestown, and then brought his family to America in 1620 on the Mayflower. The Royalls were watermen in Norfolk, England. Edmund was crushed to death between a boat and the dock in the late 1800s; several of his children emigrated to Canada and then Washington, D.C. Amos Bassett was 13 when the Civil War started; 2 of his 3 brothers who were old enough to serve died soon after they enlisted. One of his wife Matildas brothers lost his left leg in the war 8 days before it ended, and 6 days after he turned 21. Amoss first Bassett ancestor in America arrived in 1621 on the Fortune, the second ship to land at the Plymouth Colony."Article| Glenn L. Bower| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Witch in the Family
☯ Full Synopsis : "Findings by University of Virginia researchers have compelled award-winning author Stephen Hawley Martin to reconsider what led to the 1692 witch hysteria that ravaged the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Hence this new edition of his Amazon 4.5-star-rated book first published in 2006. Martin writes that now, after 325 years, the discovery by U.Va. provides the missing piece of the puzzle that makes the others fall into place. Nineteen were hanged, including the author's seven-times-great grandmother, one was crushed to death, and five died in prison. Why? Were the so-called "afflicted" faking their symptoms as many historians maintain? Martin didn't think so in 2006, and he does not think so now. He pursues several avenues of investigation that include the remarkable power of belief, the possibility indicated by quantum physics experiments that thought creates reality, and arrives at an explanation thought to be impossible until the U.Va. findings were released. "A Witch in the Family" is nothing less than a riveting, real-life murder mystery-the ultimate reality show no one who wants to know the truth should miss."Article| Stephen Hawley Martin| Statement ..."
