Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Llewellyn's Practical Magick) by Scott Cunningham
Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Llewellyn's Practical Magick)

Linda, February 20, 2007

This should be one of the first books in every beginner witches library.

Victory by Susan Cooper
Victory

Linda, October 23, 2006

Adjusting to change is not isolated only to the teen years! The experience which Susan Cooper writes about in "Victory" could be for any age -- it's hard to adjust to married life, to widowhood or to old age. Ms. Cooper's use of alternating between a young man entering teenage years in the early 1800's on a British sailing ship and a young teenage girl in 2006 being transplanted from Britian to the US works amazingly well. I felt like I was on the ship with Sam and because of that writing, when Molly visits the restored HMS Victory, it feels just as real with her experience, as unbelievable as it is. Her Granddad sounds wonderful -- all that a grandparent should be. A good addition for any library -- wouldn't this be a treat to find in a Mom and Dad's shelf of reading material? Just right for that rainy day when work, housework or homework sounds so deary -- escape to a seamlessly woven story of past and present.

The Ptsd Workbook: Simple, Effective Techniques for Overcoming Traumatic Stress Symptoms by Mary Beth Williams
The Ptsd Workbook: Simple, Effective Techniques for Overcoming Traumatic Stress Symptoms

Linda, July 29, 2006

I am grateful for the thoughtful, helpful, supportive structure of this post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd) workbook. Working through it is imparting skills I've heard mentioned or described, never understanding what was meant. This book goes a long way toward helping one navigate past (unfinished) trauma. I'm recommending it to friends, not least for the compassionate way it approaches ingrained fear of facing old trauma.
