A young seventeenth century girl and apprentice healer falls victim to local fear and superstition when the minister's daughters accuse her of witchcraft.
In a remote west-country village, all is not as it seems. The minister's daughters have taken to their bed, howling and spitting pins. Rumours of bad magic and ill-wishing are spreading fast - and fingers are pointing at Nell, the cunning woman's granddaughter.
With Matthew Hopkins, the Witch-Finder General, on his way, Nell is alone, trapped, and in mortal danger. Who can she trust? Who will save her?
Patience Madden, the minister's younger daughter, has a confession to make. A confession that shows another side to what happened to her sister, Grace, and the cunning woman's granddaughter, half a century before.
But why is her story different - full of sudden gaps and errors? Is her memory failing her?
