Eighteen-year-old Hallie O'Meara takes her first solo adventure to start a job the summer before starting college. Although the trip from her home on Virginia's Eastern Shore to its Blue Ridge Mountains is one she has taken many times with the two aunts who raised her, this new journey takes her on an adventure of unimagined dimensions. After she crosses paths with a mysterious, and somewhat menacing, couple along the way memories of a favorite childhood story are triggered. The tale of a dark witch and Williamsburg colonial man seeps from her mind's eye into her reality. The significance of this three-hundred-year-old story does not come to light until she meets the enigmatic Liam White at the home of a family friend where Hallie is staying for the summer. Past and present lives collide as Hallie and Liam wade through a convolution of moonshining, bootlegging, corruption, and prejudice while discovering not only the mysteries of Hallie's life, but of Liam's as well.
