Reviews and Endorsements:
“A feminist celebration of the magic of womanhood.
Fans of The Princess Saves Herself in this One will be thrilled with The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One! The poet spreads her wings in her second book, moving from an intimate portrait of girlhood into a complex portrayal of feminism. Mixing mysticism and lore, the poems follow a natural progression from the themes explored in Lovelace’s debut. With connections to current events and real life, The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One, expands on Lovelace’s woman-as-magic motif and moves beyond the personal narrative to a heartbreaking and uplifting portrayal of womanhood through the ages.” (Danika Stone, author of All the Feels)
"To everyone in range of this tweet: go and buy THE WITCH DOESN’T BURN IN THIS ONE by the immensely gifted Amanda Lovelace (@ladybookmad). I don’t care if you don’t usually read poetry. You will after you read this. You’re welcome. #TeamWitch"
(Deborah Harkness, author of All Souls Trilogy)
