This is a chilling story of witchcraft, murder and erotic obsession in the bestselling tradition of Anne Rice. Lisa is the singer in an underground rock'n roll band about to hit the big time. But the prospect of success is soured when their fans start ending up dead in a forest outside town, their bodies hideously mutilated. Lisa's sleep is haunted by disturbing recurring dream. Each time the dream returns, it becomes clearer and more detailed. She is walking through a forest in the dark of night. The squeaking sound is the wheel of the wheelbarrow she is pushing. Her clothes feel stiff and heavy because they are covered with blood. The wheelbarrow is heavy because it contains a body. The high keening sound is the hysterical sobbing of the woman who walks beside her. As Lisa explores the dreams further, she becomes convinced that they are not dreams, but episodes from a past life - a life as Lady Elizabeth Moreton, herbalist and wise woman. A woman whose desire to live beyond the constricting boundaries of life as a woman in seventeenth century England led her into the arms of a charming and dangerous man. And an unholy pact with the devil...Can the murders in Lisa's twentieth-century life be linked to the events in Lady Elizabeth's in the seventeenth century?
As the novel reaches its terrifying climax, Lisa must confront her greatest enemy - and her greatest love. Kim Wilkins is 26 years old.
