Elspeth Reoch is an unlikely heroine. Born in the Scottish Highlands of the 17th century to a humble peasant family, her prospects are mundane: she hopes for nothing more than marriage to the man she’s fallen in love with… But he’s already married, and she’s pregnant.
Exiled by her family, and forced to bear her baby alone, Elspeth takes comfort in a very unusual visitor: a ghost who claims to know the secrets of the faeries. Learning their spells gives her the power to heal the sick, and provide for her child—but this forbidden magic also demands a sacrifice greater than any she’d ever imagined.
