The secrets of Thistle Cottage

Barrett, Kerry, 1973-2021
1661, North Berwick. One stormy night, healer Honor Seton and her daughter Alice are summoned by the town lord to save his wife - but Honor is too late. The much-feared lord embarks on a vengeful crusade against the Seton women, and soon there are whispers of witchcraft all over town. Honor hopes her growing friendship with the lord's brother will protect them from unproven rumours and dangerous accusations. Present day, North Berwick. After an explosive scandal lands her husband in prison, Tess Blyth and her daughter flee Edinburgh to start afresh in quaint Thistle Cottage, where they can hide from the media's unforgiving glare. Tess is intrigued by the shadowy stories of witchcraft surrounding the mother and daughter who lived in the cottage centuries ago. But she quickly discovers modern-day witch hunts can be just as vicious: someone in town knows her secret - and they won't let Tess forget it.
