Summer Parker has moved to Salem, into her great-grandmother’s house. Once there, she is plagued by the sensation of someone watching her. Added to that, she is having strange dreams about her ancestor, Mary Parker, who was one of Salem’s witches. Her human roommates remove most of the eeriness of her predicament, but the intangible roomie is making himself at home too. After a close call, the identity of her resident ghost is revealed. But if Geoffrey is the ghost, does that make her Mary Parker? One thing is certain, Geoffrey is as determined to protect her.
For Clarity Putnam, turning 16 in 17th Century Salem Village means marrying Jacob. Her adolescence is over before it begins. That is, until she meets Victor.
Victor is adventurous, reckless, free-spirited… everything about her that now must give way to adulthood. The only problem being, Victor is a Witch.
Victor is not in the Devil’s Service, like the Witches that killed Clarity’s sister years before. But Clarity has never heard of a Green Witch, as Victor calls himself, and neither have the Magistrates of Salem Village, who seek to eradicate him and all wickedness in Salem, now that the truce between the Witches and Christians is over. And Jacob will stop at nothing to see Victor discredited and hung.
So Clarity must choose. If she chooses Victor over Jacob, there can only be two endings to this tale: a tragedy of the likes of Romeo and Juliet, or a Happily For Now conclusion that comes with a departure from the world Clarity knows.
This tale of two star-crossed lovers will take you on a trip to a terrifying world you never knew existed, where love is the greatest magic of all.
