Highcrag - Book coverWhen Cate Stewart’s life falls apart, a job cataloguing the vast library at Highcrag on the Scottish east coast sounds perfect. Especially since she has a personal interest in the notorious Scottish witch hunts of the sixteenth and seventeenth century on her mother's side.

But the house has a dark past that seems to affect the present. And an owner, Lyall Kinnaird, who unexpectedly stirs Cate’s damaged heart. As they explore some venues around the Kingdom of Fife, Cate learns more about the Scottish witch hunts and is increasingly disturbed by strange happenings at Highcrag.

As the Celtic festival of Samhain approaches, when the veil between the living and dead is thinnest, who can Cate trust?

Author's Note: 

The Scottish witch hunts of the 16th and 17th century were far worse than those in other countries (and Salem). My heroine, Cate, discovers her own ancestor was killed as a witch in the past although her mother's family were more wise women and healers. I loved the idea of a Scottish mansion in the present that has a dark past which Cate discovers while cataloguing the library. But the nightmares start to become all too real in the end.
