Lois the Witch Summary


Lois the Witch: and Other Stories by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell

Fear of Satan becomes murder in the name of God. Newly orphaned, the God-fearing and heart-broken Lois is sent across the Atlantic to live with her uncle's family in Salem, but on her arrival she finds herself the object of cruel hostility, potent jealousy and mad desire. When the local Pastor's daughters are contorted and convulsed by apparently satanic powers, the whole town is whipped into a hysterical witch hunt. And when Lois' cousins start to resent her presence in their household, life becomes precarious and an old woman's curse returns to haunt her.
