Peyton Miller is a disillusioned society wife and budding artist. While seeking solace through her painting, a mysterious crow leads her to a strange box hidden in the crumbled foundation of an abandoned cottage. The unusual artifacts inside the box sweep her into a maelstrom of terror that renders her unconscious. When she awakens, an elderly woman dressed in colonial garb seems mistake Peyton for the woman she claims is her grandchild, Rachel. Terrified and disoriented, Peyton reluctantly accompanies the woman to a puritanical home where she must assume the life of Rachel Landry, a woman married to a sea captain in Salem, Massachusetts. Peyton is somehow trapped in the 17th century, the year before the witch trials begin. Peyton struggles to adapt to her primitive surroundings and fights to prevent the persecution of innocent women in a village harboring a dark secret. As she becomes acclimated to her strange new life, she comes to understand why she had never been happy in the 21st century-the love of her life belongs to a distant past. Coleen D'Andrea's brilliant storytelling blends a modern-day woman's hopes and desires with New England lore.
