A mirror foretold her execution--yet the sorceress Margaret would deny such a fate...would even sacrifice her daughter Elinor to shatter the mirror's prophecy. A witch, however, cannot spill the blood of her offspring and long remain of this world. And so, Margaret must somehow bring her daughter's demise without death coming directly from her own hand.
The fair Elinor knows not why she loses home, husband and child. And though plague and starvation replace love and beauty as her constant companions, she remains unbowed. For Elinor gradually comes to recognize the powerful spells that surround her--and vows bloody vengeance on their creator...
