Some secrets last for generations . . .

‘Deliciously twisty’
‘Full of mystery’ ANITA FRANK
‘A wonderfully twisting tale of family secrets’ REBECCA NETLEY

A bewitching and haunting story of family secrets – and the lengths some will go to protect them.

When Ailsa Reid’s life in London begins to fall apart, she escapes to her grandparents’ house in Fife. But she arrives to find her grandmother, Moira – recently diagnosed with dementia – has gone missing.

Desperate to ensure Moira’s safe return, Ailsa must rely on the help of her estranged mother, Rowan. Tensions simmer between the two women as they attempt to piece together what has happened.

To find Moira, both Ailsa and Rowan must look to their ancestors, to a story about witches burned on the hill above the Reid house centuries ago and the curse laid upon the women that came after. Can they break the bonds of history in time to save their family? Or will the Reid curse be their undoing?

Perfect for fans of C. J. Cooke and Rebecca Netley.
