The Daylight Gate by Jeanette Winterson
Good Friday 1612. Pendle Hill. A mysterious gathering of thirteen people is interrupted by a local magistrate.
Is it a witches' Sabbat? In Lancaster Castle two notorious witches await trial and certain death, while the beautiful and wealthy Alice Nutter rides to their defence. Elsewhere a starved child lurks. And a Jesuit priest and former Gunpowder plotter makes his way from France to a place he believes will offer him sanctuary.
But will it? And how safe can anyone be in Witch Country?
