accused of witchcraft. Shuttleworth is pregnant for the fourth time. But as the mistress at Gawthorpe Hall, she still has no living child, and her husband Richard is anxious for an heir. When Fleetwood finds a letter she isn’t supposed to read from the doctor who delivered her third stillbirth, she is dealt the crushing blow that she will not survive another pregnancy. Then she crosses paths by chance with Gray, a young midwife. Alice promises to help her give birth to a healthy baby, and to prove the physician wrong. As Alice is drawn into the witchcraft accusations that are sweeping the north-west, Fleetwood risks everything by trying to help her. But is there more to Alice than meets the eye? Soon the two women’s lives will become inextricably bound together as the trial at Lancaster approaches, and Fleetwood’s stomach continues to grow. Time is running out, and both their lives are at stake.

  'WILLIAM' TRAILER
 UR PAST WAS 35,000 YEARS AGO
William has limited release April 12th
I also have an exquisitely interesting trailer for you for new drama WILLIAM which hits cinemas next month following  star academics, Doctors Julian Reed and Barbara Sullivan, who fall in love with each other and with the idea of cloning a Neanderthal from ancient DNA. Against the express directive of University administrators they follow through on this audacious idea. The result is WILLIAM (Will Brittain): the first Neanderthal to walk the earth for some 35,000 years. William tries his best to fit into the world around him. But his distinctive physical features and his unique way of thinking set him apart and

provoke fear. William's story is powerful and unique, but his struggle to find love and assert his own identity in a hostile world is universal and timeless.

  1. Stillbirth is a relevant topic; it is not clear what causes the death of a fetus and if it can be prevented. Women experiencing it are devastated and it takes time to heal emotionally.
    The witch Alice as opposed to the physician is a bit like alternative medicine versus conventional one. Who's going to win in the end?

    The drama "William" presents us with a very intriguing topic. I must say the lad looks good considering he's of ancient Neanderthal DNA or something. His struggles to fit in - quite interesting.

    Both movies seem worth watching.

    1. They both bring up such very current questions! I wonder if we will ever go as far as the scientists in William.

  2. 17 and pregnant for the 4th time? She sure was a busy girl! The book cover is really lovely. Also, William does look good too.

    1. Life did not last long back in the past, so they had to breed from a very early age, sadly. People used to life only till mid thirtiest. Women used to die in massive percentage during childbirth because doctors started washing their hands (and tools) only sometime in the 19th century methinks.

    2. I sometimes think it's a miracle so many people lived through such unhygienic practices.
