    I loved the author s conversational writing style, very down to earth open Right off the bat she says that for the purposes of the book, if you think you re pagan, you are, and if you think you live in a small town, you do, regardless of population numbers She shows how one can be a pagan in a town where there s seemingly now...

    To start off, this book is not a 101 or an introduction to any certain flavor of Paganism That being said I loved this book The author calls is a conversation than a book, and it s an apt description While it s not a how to book, for the other small town Pagans lik...

    I enjoyed the anecdotes the author provided from her Pagan surveys I felt those were the inspiring parts for those who have been through precarious Pagan communities or coping with the lack of it It s a great and personable read.
