Wracked with pain, Letitia races against time and nature to get her affairs in order.

First order of business: design a tomb that allows the light of the sun to shine on her face forever.

Second: use her witchcraft to curse her husband and his kin for all time.

Third: die—and wait for the horrific, final reckoning.
