Lancashire, 1612: Fourteen-year-old Grace Sowerbutts is at a dangerous crossroads, caught between the righteous might of the local Pendle Protestants, the fury of their Catholic neighbours, and the insidious threat of witchcraft.

Inspired by the true story of the Samlesbury Witches

Desperate to do the right thing, Grace's family is torn apart as the local Jesuit priest in hiding – Father Christopher Southworth of Samlesbury Hall – uses her to further his personal vendetta against his nephew’s widow, Jane Southworth.

Jane’s crime?
To reject his Catholic faith and join her parish church.
Therefore, she must be a witch.
Now all he has to do is prove it.
