The Limits of Enchantment

by Graham Joyce - £8.99  Orion Publishing (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780753819296 | ISBN 10: 0753819295

This is the story of a young woman growing up in the Midlands in 1966 - a woman who may be a witch.
 
As a baby, Fern was taken in by Mammy Cullen who schooled her in the art of old hedgerow medicine, of traditional midwifery, herbs, folk songs and tales. She comes of age in the 1960s but lives on the margins of society until a group of Beatniks descends on the small village she calls home. Then a young woman dies after visiting Mammy for a brew to stop her pregnancy, setting off a landslide of events that threatens everything Fern has ever known.

"Intricate, involving... Joyce has produced a wonderful portrait of England. This remarkable novel should scoop Joyce out of the dusty corners of bookshops and introduce his work to a much wider readership."
(Guardian)
