    But as her dreams are insistently invaded by an alluring but predatory presence and the villagers seem slightly too invested in a semi-legendary witch trial from three centuries ago, Laura finds herself drawn into a mystery of an entirely new sort. If only the locals could agree on what is actually meant to have happened in 1698...
