This is the third and final book of the Flegg trilogy, following the adventures of 21st Century Morven and her 16th Century ancestors.
Morven is obsessed with tracking down her elusive family history as she tries to make sense of her troubled past. Eventually her persistence, and that of her Aunt Ruth and Great-Aunt Linda, bear fruit - but what a strange harvest
In this final book of the Flegg Trilogy, Morven has left school and found work. Her new part-time job is more rewarding than she expected - but threatened when an old adversary comes back into her life and starts causing trouble for her again. To handle this, Morven must dig deep for a confidence she doesn't possess.
And she can't always find solace with her 16th century ancestors either, because they have troubles of their own. A careless accusation of witchcraft makes Mairi's family realise how vulnerable they are to misunderstandings. How can they explain their visitor from 450 years in the future? When the threats become real and one of their own takes flight, they come face to face with the merciless powers that be.
Undaunted, across the centuries, the Flegg family gathers.
