Cunning Women

ebook

'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.
