Description

Tanwood Forest, in a remote quarter of New England, has hardly changed since Mastodons foraged its primeval glades. This is not mere chance. The mysterious woodland is the principal endowment of the little Haverdale College (est. 1693, the year after the Salem Witch Trials), and kept as sancrosanct over the centuries as the sacred groves of Diana in the ancient world, by a dynasty of college presidents. But the current president is now old and sickly, under continual strain - and the vultures are gathering. College and endowment alike are ruthlessly menaced by a predatorily real estate developer, in league with darker forces; both wielding immense power. Pitted against them, in the seemingly one-sided power struggle, are a young professor of earth science at the college and a beautiful white witch, the guardian of the forest, leader of the Folk, and favorite of a Voodoo coven in New York. Their passionate, outlandish love affair is woven through the fast-paced narrative. There's a lot of fun and adventure in the tale.show more
