Information about the author.
As Witch Child ends so Sorceress begins. Alison Ellman is still searching for information about the wonderful Mary Newbury, she has a diary and some scattered information about other people in Mary’s life, but Mary has disappeared into the forests and Alison has no way of following her.
But when she meets Agnes Herne, Alison encounters the person who is going to tell her all about Mary’s life after she leaves Beulah. Agnes is a descendent of Mary’s and has a special skill which allows her to be in touch with Mary in the spirit world.
And Mary has a story to tell. A story of love and friendship, sadness and loss. A story that takes her across the new world in an epic search for a home. We fell under the spell of Mary in Witch Child and now at last we find out what happened to her after her ill-fated time in Beulah. Just as Mary’s story has to be told to Agnes it has to be read by us for it is passionate, compelling and utterly wonderful.
Enter the world of young Mary Newbury, a world where simply being different can cost a person her life. Hidden until now in the pages of her diary, Mary’s startling story begins in 1659, the year her beloved grandmother is hanged in the public square as a witch. Mary narrowly escapes a similar fate, only to face intolerance and new danger among the Puritans in the New World. How long can she hide her true identity? Will she ever find a place where her healing powers will not be feared?
