The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Hangman's Daughter - Oliver Pötzch - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of The Hangman's Daughter:

Magdalena and the mystery of the witch.

My favorite Oliver Pötzch quote from the book:

"If you want to know who is responsible for anything, ask who benefits from it."

Questions to ponder while reading The Hangman's Daughter:

How much does superstition guide your judgment?

Can someone be pure evil?

My thoughts about The Hangman's Daughter:

An engrossing mystery.

Well researched history.

Lots and lots of details.
