From the New York Times best-selling author of The Dovekeepers... For more than two hundred years, the Owens women had been blamed for everything that went wrong in their Massachusetts town. And Gillian and Sally endured that fate as well; as children, the sisters were outsiders. Their elderly aunts almost seemed to encourage the whispers of witchery, but all Gillian and Sally wanted was to escape. One would do so by marrying, the other by running away.

This is book is very big on flashy sensory descriptors to give counterpoint to internalized thoughts and emotions. In a way, the plot execution is in a rather sleight-of-hand manner.
