Onward to Day Seventeen!
Rebecca Bishop–and her ghost–cast a long shadow over the All Souls Trilogy. Rebecca gave Diana her foresight, her extra-sensory capacities, and her remarkable and rare facility with the higher, darker magics. She’s described as free-spirited, intelligent, thoughtful, caring, and a little mysterious–an unusual and complicated figure in the witching world. We meet Rebecca most often through her writing, or on the rare occasions when she appears as a ghost. In those times, Rebecca shows us the particular blend of creativity, whimsy, and grief that shaped her as a mother. Rebecca is a tragic figure–one who reminds us that our time with our loved ones is precious, and limited–but also a reminder of the tremendous love and sacrifice inherent to maternity.
