Civil war. Witchcraft. Persecution. Injustice. Can Rob right a past wrong and save his future? Marston Manor is an old house which the owner plans to turn into a themed attraction based on the English Civil War. Rob Hardwick is delighted to discover a family link with Marston dating back to King Charles I and the 17th century witch persecutions. But right from the start disturbing events raise mistrust and fear on the estate. Who is trying to halt his plans? Is the sabotage linked to a nearby traveller camp or the sinister appearances of a ghostly old woman? And who is Rebekah and why does she have such a hold over Rob? In his dreams Rob lives through the years of the English Civil War, experiencing it all through the eyes of his ancestor Simon. Dreams which begin gently enough in the days leading up to war in 1642 but which become ever more frightening, ending with the terrifying events of the witch trials of 1651. Characters separated by more than three centuries live through war and peace, love and loss, fear and persecution, yet at the very end can they find hope for the future?
