DANCING IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND is a novel about the horrors of the European witch persecutions as revealed through Eva Rosen, a young widow accused of witchcraft, her persecutor Wilhelm Hampelmann, and her defender Franz Lutz. A cautionary tale about the dangers of religious zealotry, the novel recreates the world of early 17th century Germany when sexual repression and religious war were encouraged, rigid patriarchy prevailed in church, state, and family - and no one questioned the existence of witches or their master, the Devil.

Review: Dancing in the Palm of His Hand: A Novel of the Witchcraft Persecutions in 17th Century Germany

User Review  - Belinda Mayer - Goodreads

Novel based on the European witch hunts of the 1600s. An interesting read that makes me thankful I don't live in the 1600s. It's hard to believe these things actually happened to women. Read full review
