"I have been a fan of Rachel's work for many years. Like the hearth fire itself, her writing is warm and welcoming, nourishing, and full of magic and wisdom! And A Witch for Every Season is a delightful guide to help you create, connect, and celebrate with many sumptuous spells, rituals, and recipes! Rachel invites us to follow the year's rhythms with intuition and mindfulness rather than strict 'rules.' And to embrace each season with such delights as sigils for summer, altars for autumn, and magic for midwinter!"—Sarah Robinson, author of Yoga for Witches, Yin Magic, and Kitchen Witch: Food, Folklore, and Fairy Tale
"In this lovely book, Rachel Patterson guides us through the changing seasons in an insightful and entertaining way. Packed with delicious recipes, cunning work, and rituals for every month of the year, the author's passion for her native landscape is clear. Reflecting on the benefits of working with regional seasons, traditions, and land spirits, along with sourcing local produce and materials, Rachel Patterson highlights a topic that is perhaps more important now than ever."—Vikki Bramshaw, author of Craft of the Wise and New Forest Folklore, Traditions & Charms
"A Witch for Every Season is sweet, empowering, and humble. Filled with reverence for nature, traditional holidays and customs, and our own hearth magic, Rachel Patterson's latest book is invitational and personal, encouraging the reader to trust their own magic, finding and relating to it within their own location. It's spiked with Rachel's gentle humour as well as being deeply reverent."—Jane Meredith, author of Falling Through the Tree of Life
