Bastard Daughter of Sir Richard Shireburn, great knight of the realm.
Outspoken wife of nobleman John Southworth of Samlesbury Hall.
Friend of Alice Nutter, farmer, humanitarian & alleged witch of Pendle.
At her dying husband’s bedside, Jane’s extraordinary diary is born. Confessional, raw, evocative, her soul-deep writings reveal her world, her forbidden beliefs and desires. Around her, in a time of treachery, suspicion and vicious persecution, begins the frenzied pursuit of innocents accused of Witchcraft, culminating in a terrible trial that is to pull Jane right into its heart.
Christine Middleton is a retired lecturer from Lancashire who has been researching the story of the Pendle witches for over 20 years.
