Summary

A woman delves into science and superstition, fear and persecution, and the hope and courage of belief in an award-winning and internationally bestselling novel by Kateřina Tučková.

Last in a centuries-old lineage of healing women, Dora Idesová was raised by her aunt Surmena in the White Carpathians. Resistant to superstition, Dora grew up hearing stories of the “goddesses” who were said to conjure love and curses and, through divine connection, cure the spirit and the body. Now an academic, Dora is researching the tales that for generations spellbound the hillside where she grew up. As the mysteries become truths, they reveal a stunning discovery that reaches back from the witch trials of the seventeenth century through Nazi-occupied Germany. Embarking on an emotional journey, Dora is about to find out how deeply and fatefully she is entwined with secret tradition.

Beautifully weaving together fact, folklore, and fiction, Kateřina Tučková draws on the stories of her ancestors to explore the extraordinary history of goddesses who walked the earth.

It's so bad

it was an interesting story, but told in the most boring way possible. I struggled hard to get through it. Right when I thought the reading of reports was over, it started again. And the ending was a wtf this unbelievable got worse

If you like listening to someone read you official reports - literally - for four hours - then this is the book for you. Ugh. After those first four hours I stayed with it thinking it had to get better. Nope. This is the first book I’ve felt was an utter waste of my time. And that makes me sad because I originally was excited about it based on the summary. The only reason I’m giving it two stars is one for the subject and narrator each.
