What impresses me deeply here is Anne Hill's three-dimensional storytelling. She examines her own experiences while holding the threads of the environment, the time frame of the evolving community, and the pressures of the surrounding culture. It comes alive in her words.

Halfway through this fascinating book I felt I was looking at a field of rocks which had just been overturned. It's familiar territory but these are creatures I've never seen. Familiar because I've been in the geographic community she describes for the past thirty years and I've intersected these circles. But my own reclaiming was rooted in Native American teachings, so while I knew a lot of these people, my focus was on other rocks and trees.

Whether you know all about Starhawk and the Reclaiming culture, or have never heard of this rich piece of Bay area women's history, you're likely to find a piece of yourself while reading this story.

Anne Hill has written a clear-eyed, brave critical examination of the unspoken roles and mores within the Reclaiming Witchcraft tradition. By doing so, she has offered an important reality check for those who find themselves baffled or isolated in their disenchantment with the mythos of Reclaiming.

In a tradition that prides itself on a non-hierarchical, diversity-welcoming culture, there are some very real shadows in play (as is true for ALL social groups). The denial of these shadows has resulted in the loss over the years of some of Reclaiming's most talented, passionate teachers, creatives, and leaders.

Over time there has been, in my view as well, an increasing tendency to ignore or even bully those who have questioned the party line. Woe to those who challenge some of those Important Personages who pretend not to be.

Until Anne's book came along, I found myself bereft, unable to explain to anyone the source of my confusion and discomfort. Why could I no longer see my beloved spiritual family with the same feelings I once had and that those around me seemed still so easily able to maintain?

For me, "The Baby and the Bathwater" has been a powerful validation of my own spiritual crisis, and my own healing has begun, thanks to Anne's clear, calm, and often wry writing style. Thank you, Anne, for your courageous, unwavering examination of the contradictions and disconnects that may, as you note, ultimately be the undoing of the Reclaiming tradition - a culture that deserves so much better.

I enjoyed reading the book, and especially appreciated how the author included all relevant hyperlinks within the text. But I was expecting more than just a few republished blog posts. This book would be a lot better if it were fleshed out enough to match the subtitle. $2.99 for the Kindle edition is too much for slim content. This would be better priced as a Kindle single for 99 cents.
