Renee,

Perhaps your patron is a fan of Donna Read or maybe your patron is Donna Read. The three films are the only ones she directed. Personally, I wouldn't purchase them for a public library, but check them out.

I have had a patron suggest we purchase the videos "The Goddess Remembered", "Burning Times", and "Full Circle." I can not find any reviews of these videos that deal with Goddess worship and the witch trials in Europe in my normal video sources. I did find a few reviews online after doing a Google search but do not know the reviewers.

Is anyone familiar with these three videos? Are they a series? Would you recommend them for a public library?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
