Sinopsis: A fictional account of the life of Deborah Leeds, a woman living in New Jersey in the 1700s, by one of her descendants, describing the conflict between her traditional pagan healings and charges of witchcraft
From the Inside Flap: Only about one hundred miles south of New York City, in the isolated area of New Jersey known as the Pine Barrens, sightings of a frightening creature have continued into recent times. Today the Jersey Devil survives as the name of a professional sports team, but the legend of this once-dreaded creature has roots that reach back two hundred sixty years to colonial America. In this fictionalized account of the Devil's origin, Cynthia Lamb has relied on an impressive combination of family history and fascinating research to bring this story to life.
When America was a distant, wild country in 1704, a courageous young English woman emigrated to the colony of New Jersey to marry a man of her mother's choosing. Her most precious possession was a book containing her grandmother's ancient knowledge of herbal healing. Years of instruction had grounded her in the beauty and power of a long-ago time when women were close to a ruling goddess. But authorities of the Crown considered their rituals of witchcraft to be criminal acts, punishable by hanging.
In the New World, Deborah Leeds discovered Quaker tolerance and a measure of womanly freedom, but still had to live cautiously because of her religious beliefs. She married, bore many children, and among colonists acquired a strong reputation as a healer. During her life, she befriended other female healers -- Erin in particular, a fiery indentured Irish servant who possessed powerful knowledge of her own. This formed the basis for a loving but dangerous relationship. Both women had to contend with the arrival of a hostile "Doctor of Physic" as they raised daughters who could follow in their footsteps and continue to fulfill Brigid's charge.
The story spans Deborah's maiden- and motherhood, and concludes just as she is about to enter her crone years of wisdom -- when an unexpected pregnancy shatters her world.
