Summary

Witches are dangerous. They can kill you with a look, or a word. They can send their friend the Devil after you in the shape of a dog or a cat. They can make a clay picture of you, then break it.... and a few weeks later, you are dead. Today, of course, most people don’t believe in witches. But in 1612, everybody was afraid of them. Young Jennet Device in Lancashire knew a lot about them because she lived with the Witches of Pendle. They were her family.

Disappointed

This is a very short story only made longer by the slow reading of the narrator. It was so difficult to listen to that I had to speed it up.
Very disappointed all round

Very informative

A good factual account of the Pendle witches. Short and sweet. Worth listening to if your interested in this subject.
