I went and supplemented my memory at the library database afterward.  The
second book is _Witch Water_, and she wrote three others after _The Witch
Herself_...oh, great, now I've forgotten all THOSE titles...anyway, one of
them was _Witch's Eye_.  I'm toying with the idea of re-reading the series
and adding the later ones.

It's like being sucked dry somehow.  The writer Anne Lamott says something
about how babies are born clutching a little piece of your brain in their
tiny fists....  It's always such a relief when, about four or six months
after the baby's born, I feel myself go back to normal.  Unfortunately
anything I learned DURING that time is fuzzy.
