Maggie Anton: Enchantress (a Novel of Rav Hisda's Daughter)

Based on five years of research and characters from the Talmud, Enchantress is a novel that weaves together Talmudic lore, ancient Jewish magic and a timeless love story set in 4th century Babylonia. The plot centers around a courageous woman with special gifts, and her husband, who possesses knowledge of the secret Torah, and how they safeguard their people against demons, the Evil Eye, and even the Angel of Death.

Maggie Anton was a National Jewish Book Award finalist and Library Journal’s choice for Best Historical Fiction. She is also the author of the critically-acclaimed series, Rashi's Daughters.
