Nancy Atherton’s follow-up to her recent New York Times best seller sees the sleepy village of Finch set aflutter by a bewitching mystery from its past.
Last year, the otherworldly sleuth’s devoted fans secured a place on the New York Times best seller list for Nancy Atherton’s Aunt Dimity and the Family Tree. Now Lori and Aunt Dimity are back on the list – and this time, they’re on a witch-hunt.
At first glance, the unassuming Mrs. Amelia Thistle is a disappointment to the villagers of Finch, but Lori Shepherd isn’t fooled by the new arrival’s bland persona. Amelia is a world-famous artist, traveling incognito, and, after unearthing a fragment of a family diary hinting that Mistress Meg, the Mad Witch of Finch, might be one of her ancestors, she’s come to Finch in search of the truth.
