wow

I don't understand the very few bad reviews, I can only grasp that the people do not understand, nor have true knowledge of the paganism of Cymru. Albeit, myself, I have made mistakes in my research, I am a person who is aware to take heed of more experienced practitioners. I find people have an idea of someone and their practice and hold them accountable to that notion, rather than academically and/or personally researching many sources.
I knew the book would be fantastic, I was rather surprised how much I knew, and pleasantly not shocked on what I did not. Being brought up in cymru, many things now make sense from listening to the book. I CAN-NOT wait for the physical copy!
I definetely felt I underpaid for such an amazing point of reference for my cymry practise.
Mhara not only confirmed things for me, but gave me some many tools to expand my practise.
I sing the praises of mhara, her content & her book because she and they deserve it.
I have told countless people about it, and now I am definetely going to be gifting a few copies to loved ones. Da iawn, if I could give 100 stars I would.

A good introduction to Welsh Witchcraft

I have read and heard all of this book. It is not a story book. The reader has a nice voice but isn’t Welsh. She is easy to listen to though.
It is a much needed help into the sadly overlooked Welsh spiritual practices and their cultural history. The author clearly is very passionate about Wales and all things Welsh. This only enhances the experience of the reader.
It is not a heavy duty history book but is quite modern in its approach and includes some spells and spiritual exercises. It is a good introduction to the subject and it takes the reader through the seasons and has a celebration for them which you can do at home. I look forward to reading more books on this subject by this author in the future. Would recommend.

Great book but look elsewhere for pronunciation

Great book but the narrator's pronunciation of Welsh words was not great, which is a problem for people not familiar with the language. In fairness to her, she had clearly looked up the basic rules (her Ll and Dd sounds were correct) but I'd recommend looking to the author's YouTube channel for better examples.

Aside from that, it's a lovely, insightful book on a fascinating topic, written by a Welsh woman who grew up steeped in her culture. Well worth a read or listen (maybe both!) for anyone interested in the subject matter. The narrator was good aside from the issue above, too.

unexpectedly charming and delightful

At first I will admit, I found the book to be repeative in speech and wordy. HOWEVER, I highly recommend sticking through the begining. As the context delves deeper and becomes more meaningful with lessons in Welsh history and magick.
