In Gilded Age New York, a centuries-long clash between two magical families ignites when a young witch must choose between love and loyalty, power and ambition, in this magical novel by Louisa Morgan.
Harriet Bishop, descended from a long line of witches, uses magic to help women in need — not only ordinary women, but also those with powers of their own. But what will she do when it’s her own family posing the threat?
Frances Allington, Harriet’s cousin, has used her wiles and witchcraft to claw her way out of poverty and into a spectacular marriage with one of New York’s wealthiest new tycoons. Now, she is scheming to make a glorious aristocratic match for her headstrong and reluctant step-daughter, Annis–by any means necessary.
Together, Harriet and Annis must find a way to resist Frances’ dark agenda, lest she — and the dashing young lord she suspects she could come to love — lose their freedom, and possibly their lives.
