  It is the book. If you would scan it, I would really appreciate it, and, as I 
said, I'll be happy to validate it.

    Is this the book?

    The wise woman 
        Gregory, Philippa.

    The author of the Wideacre trilogy offers another intense, absorbing tale, 
a grisly drama of passion and witchcraft in 16th-century England. Growing up as 
an ill-used apprentice to Morach, the much-feared wise woman of the moors, Alys 
finds respite by joining an order of Catholic nuns. When young Lord Hugo and 
his men burn the abbey to the ground during a drunken rampage, Alys is the only 
one to escape; she flees back to Morach, consumed with guilt at having 
abandoned her dying sisters. Summoned to minister to Lord Hugh, Hugo's father, 
Alys soon finds herself deeply involved in the treachery and intrigue 
surrounding the old man's attempts to have his son's marriage to the barren 
Lady Catherine annulled. Attracted to Hugo despite his murderous past, Alys 
begins to practice witchcraft in earnest to rid him of Catherine and become his 
wife. Her spells work all too well: Catherine's long-awaited pregnancy ends 
disastrously, and Hugo comes to love Alys, but in a sickly haze of lust that 
provides no basis for marriage. Alys soon finds herself so sunk in evil, so 
removed from God's love, that only a truly shocking gesture can bring about her 
salvation. Gregory adeptly manipulates hair-raising horror and mounting 
suspense, brilliantly evoking the period's turbulent atmosphere. Dou ble day

    This new novel by the author of Wideacre (S. and S., 1987) and other 
popular historical fiction profiles a woman versed in charms, conjuring, and 
fortune-telling who nonetheless falls into catastrophic misfortunes time after 
time. Escaping from an English convent, young Alys learns the arts of healing 
and magic from the ``wise woman'' who takes her in. Her struggle to find an 
independent life takes her among an array of characters, including a mediocre 
lover, a sickly old man still very much in control of the lives around him, and 
two challenging women: Marach and Mother Hildebrande. Gregory weaves a vivid 
tapestry of life in the 16th century, including plenty of sex, as the narrative 
strains toward a not-unexpected end. M.E. Chitty, Fairchild International Lib .
