DescriptionCan a man be maimed by witchcraft? Can a severed head speak? Based on the most notorious of English witch-trials, this is a tale of magic, superstition, conscience and ruthless murder. It is set in a time when politics and religion were closely intertwined; when, following the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, every Catholic conspirator fled to a wild and untamed place far from the reach of London law. This is Lancashire. This is Pendle. This is witch country.

Reviews for The Daylight Gate
This was a fun read. I had read a lot of early writings of JW but with Written on the Body, I'd stopped as her writing was no longer appealing to me. This book was a quick read with imagery that would make it a good film. by Anne Bentley
Where is the poetry?
When I saw the topic of this book I was a little unsure, but being a Jeanette Winterson devotee (Gut Symmetries; Written on the Body and her recent memoir being favourites) I decided to buy. I was very disappointed. There is very little of the beauty of words demonstrated in this book - her usual trademark. When I read Jeanette Winterson I like to leave thinking about at least one abstract concept differently. Not so with this book which is quite prosaic; too simply composed and just...a bit boring. Had it been any other author (apart from Margaret Atwood!) I would not have finished this book. by Dara Sampson
