"[A] beautiful expression of [Hopman's] life drenched in the smells and songs of the herbs that are important to her craft."
--The Druid Network

"Hopman's ability to incorporate moving and beautiful examples of ritual into the narrative without too much disruption demonstrates a nascent talent for blending historical scholarship, modern practice and individual inspiration into effective story-telling."
--Bond of Druids: A Druid Journal
