    One thought on “The Witch's Brat”

    1. Given her own life story, I suppose it's not surprising how often Rosemary Sutcliff wrote about people with disabilities. I always appreciate the lack of magical healing, and the way her characters find their place in the world despite everything. This is very classically Sutcliff in that. It's a slow story, no major drama, following a boy who finds his place and a master to follow -- also quite classically Sutcliff. I liked it a lot; it goes to show you don't need major action, just small and i [...]

    2. It's becoming a bit of a New Year's tradition to read a Sutcliff novel as first book of the year! I had this little book sitting on my shelf for quite a wee time now, so I am so glad I finally picked it up for the new year. It is fast-paced, easy-to-read and wonderful, with the heart-throbbing "little moments" that is characteristic of Sutcliff. This simple story of Lovel, with a crooked back and foot and with the gift of healing, was really special and put that little ache in my soul. I loved R [...]

    3. Sutcliff had a quality about her that I don't see in many writers. She has a painterly eye for detail which she used to set the feel of her books. She also has an interest in and portrayal of the historically insignificant, who still should be remembered. Rahere was nothing more than a King's Jongleur. However, he had a vision and persuaded his King, Henry I, to support his vision of creating a great hospital and priory to provide medical help for the poor. That is the historical framework. Anot [...]

    4. The dedication for this little book is "for Margaretwho only likes my earlier books, because she says the later ones are too bloody. Here is one of the earlier kind" And truthfully, this book, though by no means sweet and sugary (is Sutcliff ever sweet and sugary?) is written more lightly and less grimly than some of her other works. I read it in the whole of a rainy, wintry Sunday afternoon and was quite enraptured by the tale of crippled Lovel the "witch's brat," and fantastic, half mocking, h [...]

    5. One of Sutcliff's "earlier kinds" of stories--a small, quiet story with no action and a lot of sense of place, this book is aimed at younger readers than some of Sutcliff's more popular books. The protagonist, Lovel, is disabled and a healer, which makes him not unusual for a Sutcliff protagonist, but he's also a monk, which is unusual (on the other hand, his decision to become a monk is utterly pragmatic and almost entirely lacking in religious calling, so Sutcliff's ambivalence about organized [...]

    6. I loved this!! It is an odd story about Henry Lovell, an crippled boy in 12th century England. He has the powers to heal he inherited from his Grandmother. He is chased out of his village for being the "Witches Brat" and finds solace in a monastery where he meets the King's Jongleur, Rahere (a real person). He is first a servent, then a Monk, then an Infirmarian. Rahere becomes a friar and invites Henry to join him in setting up St Bartholomew's Hospital in London.I really felt that I had been t [...]

    7. My first introduction to Rosemary Sutclif, the British young adult author. Discovered her during Mason's home-school year, although I never had him read this.Wonderful text, would be engaging to many teenagers, I think.

    8. The story of Lovel, who is brought up by his grandmother on the Sussex Downs, after his parents both die. She is the village wise woman and learned in cures and the use of plants, Lovel also inherits this gift from her. Despised in the vicinity for his differences (he has a hunched back and twisted leg) he is attacked for being the 'witch's brat' and stoned - luckily escaping and making his way through the woods, eventually finding sanctuary in a monastery where he puts his healing skills to goo [...]

    9. Lovel was raised in a village where he could not so much as lay eyes on a cow before the owners threw stones at him and called him 'Witch's Brat'. Lovel was different. He had a hump in his back and lived with his old and wizened grandmother who was called Witch by the village people. She spent her time out in her garden growing herbs that classified as the Devil's herbs. So people took to calling her Witch and her grandson the Witch's Brat. Lovel's grandmother soon died, and he went to work in a [...]

    10. Sutcliff wrote everything from children's picture books through the young reader/YA genre's to adult fare. She had a sure sense of history and has always been one of my favorite authors. This story takes place in the early 12th century and offers us a glimpse of the herbal medicinal care of the period, as well as an interesting look at the particulars of raising great edifices such as a hospital/infirmary and a great gothic church. Especially interesting is the look we get at how the stone work [...]

    11. What can I say about this book? I think it is one of the most charming and best written books I've ever read. Even as an adult, I go back and visit this book again and again, especially when I am depressed or troubled. Lovel's life, so hard yet so full and beautiful, always comforts me. I have always liked Rosemary Sutcliff's novels, and the simplicity of the writing, the way the characters are developed, and Ms. Sutcliff's ability to evoke a time and place so fully, make the book a constant del [...]

    12. this is about a young man who has a deformity of his back and it is set during the reign of henry 1lovel helps is grandmother to heal people with herbs and when she dies he runs away from the place where he lives. he arrives at a monastery where he meets rahere the kings jester. whist at the monastery lovel helps with the physic garden and in the infirmary. rahere comes back to the monastery and asks him if he will join him in london with a new hospital and church. he does not go straight away. [...]

    13. Nice written, but a bit too pat and tidy, this isn't Rosemary Sutcliff's best work. Poor Lovel is crippled from birth and, therefore, suspected of being somehow an agent of the Devil since this is the 1100's. After being driven out of his village upon the death of his grandmother who was his protector and only living relative, Lovel finds place for himself as a healer in a monastery. I was little sad that Lovel entered a religious order, but really to be even somewhat historically accurate, he w [...]

    14. Rosemary Sutcliff is one of my favorite writers. This book describes the founding of St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London. By the end of chapter one we know the hunchbacked boy has a gift of healing. The author falls into some telling rather than showing to carry you through the years and how the boy feels about them. Surprisingly there are no female characters except the dead grandmother.

    15. A very good read, especially for young readers, because it gives them insight into how disabled people were once treated.

    16. Pleasant, short novel. Nothing extraordinary, but an adept use of character and setting, typical of the author.

    17. One of her books for younger readers, which makes you think of how it might have been to be disabled in the 12th Century, when to be lame was a result of sin
