Hermione Randolph, a spinster and herbalist, is summoned to Hayward Hall to keep house for her uncle, to guard the fortune of her unmarried cousin, Georgiana, and to tend to her great aunt, Lady Lavinia Hamilton.
Lady Hamilton is old and frail but, nevertheless, her death during a hunt ball is both unexpected and unnatural. When the local doctor calls the death a suicide, Hermione is determined to prove him wrong.
When she herself is accused of both witchcraft and murder, she must clear her name. Who would kill a woman who was near death anyway from natural causes? How? Why? Answers to these questions lead Hermione to dark family secrets, long kept hidden.
It will take all her strength, and some assistance from a helpful neighbor, to save Hayward and, perhaps, find the happiness of a home of her own.
