"This engrossing historical novel is essential for lovers of Scottish history. With its strong female protagonist, Fletcher’s latest work casts a spell that will linger over readers long after they have finished the book." —Library Journal (starred review)

In 1692, brilliant, captivating Corrag—accused witch, orphaned herbalist, and unforgettable heroine—is imprisoned for her supposed involvement in a massacre in the Scottish highlands. Suspected of witchcraft and murder and awaiting her death, she tells her story to Charles Leslie, an Irish propagandist who seeks information to condemn the Protestant King William, rumored to be involved in the massacre. Hers is a story of passion, courage, love, and the magic of the natural world. By telling it, she transforms both their lives.

Originally published in hardcover under the title Corrag: A Novel.

    Magnificent!! Couldn't put it down. The legend of Corrag is a testimony to the strength of the female spirit and sheds a bright light on a dark era, the misconception of "witch". As tragic as those burnings were, we need to remember them to keep bigotry, rumor and hatred at bay - even today.
