“Fletcher gives readers a strong plot . . . and a triumphant heroine in Corrag, whose travails are truly epic.”—Publishers Weekly

In 1692, brilliant, captivating Corrag-accused witch, orphaned herbalist, and unforgettable heroine-is imprisoned in the Scottish highlands, suspected of witchcraft and murder. As she awaits her death she tells her story to Charles Leslie, an Irish propagandist who seeks information she may have condemning the Protestant King William. 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.
