Summary
In the early twentieth century in Swampsea, seventeen-year-old Briony, who can see the spirits that haunt the marshes around their town, feels responsible for her twin sister's horrible injury until a young man enters their lives and exposes secrets that even Briony does not know about
Summary
Plagued by guilt for harm that she believes she brought on her family, 17-year-old Briony Larkin is convinced that she's a witch. But there are many dark secrets in Briony's village of Swampsea, and when a London engineer and his handsome son arrive to drain the marshes -- causing the supernatural Old Ones who live in the swamp to retaliate -- those secrets begin bubbling to the surface. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
