Synopsis

In this tale of New England witchery, it is ten years after the harrowing and tragic events of the Salem witch trials.

Abigail Williams—the lead accuser who sent twenty people to their doom as a young girl—now lives under an assumed name on the outskirts of Boston, quietly striving to atone for her sins.

When a handsome stranger arrives claiming to be a sailor in need, Abigail takes him in, and long-dormant passions awaken within her.

Love starts to grow between the two—an unlikely flower cracking through salty earth.

But their contentment is short-lived, for someone else is coming for Abigail, someone who has been looking for her since she danced in the weird woods of Salem.

The Devil is demanding Abigail's soul, and a debt will be paid—but first, Abigail must make peace with the woman she most wronged…
