Rosie is just going through the motions, leading an average quiet life. However, that normal life is thrown into a tailspin when Rosie’s husband succumbs to a terminal illness. A mysterious friend named Vera Caldwell shows up on the doorstep, offering food, comfort, and an introduction to a world Rosie once thought impossible. Suddenly, nothing is what it seems to be. The marriage she thought to be a happy union is revealed to be one full of dark secrets.

And Rosie’s own identity begins to unravel as she finds herself at the center of the ongoing history of witchcraft in Middle America.
