One hundred thirty-nine years ago, Maggie Morton found herself at the opposing end of a campaign to have her humiliated, ostracized and eventually hung for practicing witchcraft. She was buried in a shallow grave in the back of the local cemetery. Maggies lonely spirit walks restless in the cemetery as she continues to search for someone to believe her story and expose the truth behind her death.
Angela Horne is coming back to Ezras Plateau for the first time in over a decade. The town is throwing a weekend long celebration for her great grandfather Caleb, who rid the town of evil back in 1870 and offered it a direction of hope and righteousness. During her stay, she discovers a dust covered diary, over a century old, in the attic of her grandmothers house. As Angela reads, she learns that Maggie was not a witchshe was a scapegoat. Whats worse, someone else knows she has that diary and wants it, and her, put away for good.
Amazing story of horror and horrible people who seek their own glory and do not follow what they preach. It will make you cry and cringe, or at least it did me. I was absolutely horrified although we all know of the history of these types of stories. These things actually happened and as a Christian (not Catholic), I am very sad these happened to stain the name of God.
