Seventeen-year-old Sarah Barton has always been taught by her elders to embrace her powers. But living as a witch in nineteenth-century New England is not easy for Sarah, who must keep her gifts a secret from commoners-including her own fiance-in order to ensure survival for herself and her family.
As her town prepares to celebrate its centennial anniversary, Sarah and other gifted ones barely escape another witch hunt that leaves them all wondering who has tipped off the town council about their secret meetings in the forest. But when Sarah decides to use her gifts to save the lives of commoners and reveals her secret to her fiance, her future becomes uncertain and a rift forms in her community.
As an ancient prophecy comes to fruition, Sarah and four other young witches are propelled down a life-altering path, facing unbelievable obstacles and battling an evil force determined to destroy their powers. In this fantasy tale, a young witch lured by dark magic and the promise of ultimate power must rely on her inner strength and trusted friends as she attempts to fulfill the prophecy of their people before it is too late.
