The spellbinding sequel to Witch Child "Startlingly convincing. . . . Once Agnes's quest begins, readers will be hooked." Booklist
It came to Agnes unbidden: a vision of Mary Newbury, a young woman driven from her Puritan settlement, accused of being a witch. It is an image of a life about to change radically, as Mary defies all accepted norms embracing independence, love, and loyalty to a Native American community that accepts her as one of their own. The two women's lives are separated by almost four hundred years, but they are linked by more than blood. For, like Mary, Agnes has special powers powers that Mary seeks to ensure that the rest of her story is told.
