"Fantasy novel set in Eastern Pennsylvania among the Pennsylvania Dutch community.

In this remarkable novel is told the story of three sisters forced into witchcraft by peculiar circumstances, how as social outcasts they find a new power from hexing, its incantations, cabalistic signs, and bags of herbs, are brought into glowing reality by the author's own prose magic.

Written and published in the wake of the York County, PA "hex trial" that made national headlines in the late 1920s."
