I love the cover to this book. It matches Aura's other book, "Hoodoo Spiritual Baths." They make a very pretty set. I have pre-ordered and am looking forward to getting my copy.

I love that there seem to be so many sections dedicated to strengthening, nurturing, and loving ourselves as well as working for the love and advancement of others. I'm so excited about all the upcoming book releases!

I got my copy... and here is my review:

If you are looking for magic spells for sex, marriage, fidelity, motherhood, and house blessing for yourself, your friends, or your clients, this book is a real help. It contains over 100 traditional women's conjure spells from the 19th century to the present that promote strong, protected, successful, and meaningful lives for women, from youth through old age.

"Women's Work" starts with a brief and respectful historical look at hoodoo (African American folk magic) but quickly gets down to the kind of real-life situations that today's women must face, such as body shaming, drug addition, job security, career promotion, sexuality, seductiveness, menstruation, marriage, fidelity, infidelity, fertility, infertility, pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, home protection, family safety, stingy husbands, divorce, grandchildren, widowhood, and removing curses from men who have been tied or bound by their ex-partners.

In tough cases that involve medical or legal issues, the author wisely explains how to overcome these challenges through a combination of mundane and magical means, never disrespecting the practical realities of science, law, or society, but always urging the addition of roots, herbs, enchantment, prayer, and down-home hoodoo spells to give women a path to successful outcomes.

The spells range from simple to complex, and involve the magical use of herbs, roots, candles, anointing oils, teas, baths, mojo bags, sachet powders, incense, prayers, petition papers, and personal concerns. (Speaking of personal concerns, the section on menstrual blood spells is alone worth the modest price of the text.) As with Ms. Aura Laforest's earlier book, "Hoodoo Spiritual Baths", the ingredients are easy to obtain and in many cases are common household goods, which is in keeping with the folkloric nature of this form of magic. Full recipes are given for making many of the formulas and products from scratch, while others, such as the oils, are common supplies available inexpensively through most African American style hoodoo drug stores, online or in person.

This is not a book of anthropological theory. I would call it a "girl scout manual" of magic spells that can be worked by women of all levels of expertise and knowledge. Even an experienced witch such as myself found some exciting surprises inside. Short and sweet, "Women's Work" contains many sorcerous secrets that can help you become a happier woman and it is chock-full of the type of practical folk magic that has been contributed to our culture by countless female root workers of the past 100 years.

I can't wait to pick up Aura's book the next time I'm in the shop! I looked on Amazon and it says "usually ships in a month". Seems like a long time to wait.
Thank you Saint Expedite, St. Joseph, and St. Jude

I love this book so much. I'm only part way through it, but it's written with such kindness and empathy for any woman who could possibly pick it up that it's actually made me cry a few times. Aura's wonderful heart radiates from every page. I can't wait to apply these practices to my life.

I bought this book because I had Aura Laforest's other book on Spiritual Baths, which I use a lot. I was surprised at the depth of the thoughts she expressed about life, as well as all of the original and traditional rootwork spells included. Aura is just as gentle and helpful in the book as her answers here in the forum. I think men will enjoy reading it too. but it really is specially for women, just like the title says. Thanks, Aura.
