(From the publisher):
Sara Latimer is not yet thirty years old and feels all alone. Her parents and brother are all dead. Her late aunt, also named Sara, has left young Sara the family home. Heartbroken, Sara decides to move to Witch Hill to learn what she can about her family’s past.
Despite Sara’s friendly overtures, the residents of the small New England town shut her out, turning pale when they see her coming, walking away when she speaks. Dr. Brian Standish, also a newcomer, is Sara’s first friend – and soon the friendship between them grows into something deeper and warmer. But even Brian is stunned when he and Sara discover a portrait of her aunt – a portrait that could be of young Sara herself. The two women are identical, even to the unusual color of their eyes. And rumors are circulating through the town that young Sara is really old Sara, come back to take revenge on the people who shunned her as a witch.
Sara laughs off the idea that her aunt was a witch, only to have it confirmed by Matthew Hay, Pastor of the Church of the Antique Rite. Moreover, Hay believes that Sara has her aunt’s powers – and that she is ripe for possession by old Sara’s vengeful spirit. Unwilling to believe, and therefore unable to protect herself, young Sara’s will crumbles under the steady onslaught of Matthew’s evil. For a time, her love for Brian Standish keeps her sane, but at last Sara is lost, perhaps forever, in a maelstrom of dark power and sex magick.
