Summary
A town gripped by fear. A woman accused of witchcraft. Who can save Pale Harbour from itself? Maine, 1846. Gabriel Stone is desperate to escape the ghosts that haunt him in Massachusetts after his wife's death, so he moves to Maine, taking a position as a minister in the remote village of Pale Harbour. But not all is as it seems in the sleepy town. Strange, unsettling things have been happening, and the townspeople claim that only one person can be responsible: Sophronia Carver, a reclusive widow who lives with a spinster maid in the eerie Castle Carver. Sophronia must be a witch, and she almost certainly killed her husband. As the incidents escalate, one thing becomes clear: they are the work of a twisted person inspired by the wildly popular stories of Mr Edgar Allan Poe. And Gabriel must find answers, or Pale Harbour will suffer a fate worthy of Poe's darkest tales
Summary
In 1846, Gideon Stone moves to Pale Harbor, Maine, where there is a vacancy for a new minister, in his efforts to escape the ghosts that haunt him in Massachusetts after his wife's death. But strange things have been happening, and the townspeople suspect Sophronia Carver, a widow and recluse who lives with a spinster maid in Castle Carver. When Gideon meets Sophronia he knows this charming, beautiful woman can't be guilty. Together they realize that the mysterious events have one thing in common: they all contain elements from popular stories of Mr. Edgar Allan Poe. When events escalate to murder, Gideon and Sophronia attempt to find the killer.
