Temperance and her younger sisters have been living in the shadow of their mother’s death, a woman accused of witchcraft but died before trial, leaving doubt over her innocence. Now years later, they are being sent overseas to the new colonies to live with their maternal aunt.
Not too sure of where their future lies, they arrive at their aunt’s place and find out that their female cousins’ deaths may not have been natural. Not only that, but there appears to be a Specter haunting the area targeting people with psychic attacks.
Drawing on only the limited oral traditions passed down to her from her mother, and with the help of her Aunt, Temperance seeks to aid her new home and help the community in finding a means to rid the area of the negative spirit.
