This review is from: Kissing the Witch: Old Tales in New Skins (Hardcover)
This was--no pun intended--the most magical book that I have read since *The Mists of Avalon*. Beautiful language, dark eroticism and finely-woven structure makes *Kissing the Witch* a treat even for people who wouldn't normally enjoy books with "alternative" themes.
There's more and more wonderful lesbian fiction out there, but in the plethora of murder mysteries and everyday romances, sometimes the soul hungers for mythic characters. I love this book because it connects me with the awesome experience of passionate self-discovery. There is a moment when you begin to find who you are when the heavens seem to reverberate, but the sound is so soft that you only hear it with your heart. I can only sit back in wonder as Ms Donoghue articulates it so well. My hat is more than off to her...I'm willing to learn a full court bow!

"There is a moment when you begin to find who you are when the heavens seem to reverberate, but the sound is so soft that you only hear it with your heart..." It's rare to find such poetry in a review. What a stunning and beautiful truth. I'm glad, and grateful, that I saw this.
