In 1692, brilliant, captivating Corrag--accused witch, orphaned herbalist, and unforgettable heroine--is imprisoned for her supposed involvement in a massacre in the Scottish highlands. Suspected of witchcraft and murder and awaiting her death, she tells her story to Charles Leslie, an Irish propagandist who seeks information to condemn the Protestant King William, rumored to be involved in the massacre. Hers is a story of passion, courage, love, and the magic of the natural world. By telling it, she transforms both their lives.

Review quote

A novel with moments of such extraordinary beauty and quiet power that it is impossible, having read it, not to look at the world anew. That in itself is a masterful achievement. A stirring historical romance...sweeps out a lot of the old cliches about witches and casts an enchanting spell in favor of bold women everywhere.--Ron Charles Fletcher gives readers a strong plot...and a triumphant heroine in Corrag, whose travails are truly epic.
