The new novel from Susan Fletcher, author of the bestselling 'Eve Green' and 'Oystercatchers'. 1692. Corrag, a wild young girl from the mountains of Scotland, has been imprisoned as a witch.
Terrified, in a cold, filthy cell, she awaits her fate of death by burning - until she is visited by Charles Leslie, a young Irishman, hungry to question her.
For Corrag knows more than it seems: she was witness to the bloody and brutal Massacre of Glencoe.
But to reveal what she knows, Corrag demands a chance to tell her true story.
It is a tale of passion and courage, magic and betrayal, and the difference that a single heart can make to the great events of history.
