A bewitching story of forbidden love and the curtailing of female wildness set amongst the long shadows cast by the Pendle Witch Trials.
'I loved it. Atmospheric and so good' Marian Keyes
When it is no longer safe to be a witch, they call themselves cunning.Seventeenth-century Lancashire is a dark and mistrustful place. Ten years after the notorious Pendle witch trials saw ten accused witches hanged, young Sarah Haworth and her family live as outcasts in a ruined hamlet. The inhabitants of the nearby village despise 'cunning folk' like them, but their services - healing balms, herbal remedies - will always be in demand, and they have a way of coming to know all the village's secrets. A chance meeting sees Sarah become acquainted with Daniel, a young man from the village. As they are drawn closer together, a new magistrate arrives in the area to investigate a spate of strange deaths befalling the villagers. As his eye falls on Sarah and her sister, Sarah must find a way to protect her family and embrace her own powers.
