 What It's About!
Her mother had always been afraid. That's what Damaris remembered. From 
the time she was a little girl until the day her mother died, she had seen the fear in her eyes.  
But now she understood. Now she was afraid, too. 
 Young Damaris wanted more than anything to be happy at Thornoak, the 
ancient manor owned by her aunt and uncle. Adventuring through the wide, 
open beauty of the Dale in the company of her rambunctious cousins she 
rediscovered a joy she had thought lost with the death of her parents.  
And in the deep, storm-tossed eyes of Lauran Ashbrigg she was surprised 
to find an entirely new emotion.

But even under the warm and inviting sun, Damaris is chilled by the 
undeniable fact that the family which claims to welcome and love her is 
hiding truths from her: The truth of the Lady Stone. The truth of the 
Old Ways. The truth of moon and star and witchcraft.

The truth of her mother's death.

Margaret Frazer is the award-winning author of more than twenty 
historical murder mysteries and novels, including the Edgar-nominated 
Sister Frevisse and Player Joliffe series. She makes her home in 
Minneapolis, Minnesota, surrounded by her books, but she lives her life 
in the 1400s.

"Over the years I’ve had a rag-tag of various jobs, including 
librarian, secretary, reseacher for a television station, gift shop 
manager, and assistant matron at an English girls’ school. Married once 
upon a time but not anymore, I have two well-grown sons who become 
uneasy if I read books about poisons at the supper table and refuse to 
turn their backs on me when I say I want to try something I might use in 
a story. When I write, I want to delve as far inside the perceptions of 
my characters as possible, to look at their world more from their point 
of view than from ours, because the pleasure of going thoroughly into 
otherwhen as well as otherwhere — the chance to move right away from the 
familiar into a whole other way of seeing and behaving — has always been 
one of my own great pleasures in reading. As a writer I deeply want to 
give that same pleasure to others."
