Synopsis

Everyone knows the devil is real.

Everyone knows that witches exist.

Everyone knows that saying the wrong thing can get you hanged . . .

When fourteen-year-old Maggie's grandmother is accused of witchcraft, Maggie has to run for her life. But Scotland is in the grip of terror and Maggie runs straight into danger, falling into the hands of the English. Defying the king can be deadly, but falling in line is unthinkable. Maggie must learn to stand up for herself if she is to survive . . .

The Witching Hour is a gripping tale of persecution in 17th century Scotland by Elizabeth Laird.
