In colonial New England, a law-abiding Puritan woman goes missing. Or perhaps she has fled or abandoned her family. Or been kidnapped and set loose to wander in the dense forest. Alone and possibly lost, she meets another woman. Then everything changes. On a journey through dark woods full of almost-human wolves, through a deep well wet with the screams of men, and on a living ship made of human bones, our heroine may find that the evil she flees has been inside her all along. This is the story of a bewitching, a betrayal, a master huntress and her quarry. It is a story of anger, of evil, of hatred and of redemption.
