When Annie Thornton, midwife and fledgling witch, falls through time to a 15th century Yorkshire village, she befriends Will and Jack, two soldiers returning from the French Wars. Annie discovers that a long-ago aunt, also a midwife and witch, has contrived the meeting to expose corruption in a troubled community. Intrigued by the mysterious disappearance of a local innkeeper, the three newcomers find that darkness lurks in the village shrouded by fear and long-held secrets. The powerful steward of the local manor appears a man with much to hide. To protect himself, he threatens to see Annie burned at the stake as a witch. Between falling in love, delivering babies medieval-style, learning about witchcraft and seeking a murderer, Annie finds that even magic and steadfast friends cannot keep her out of danger.
Tangle of Time is a rollicking romp through Yorkshire towns and moors, in contemporary and medieval times. Filled with engaging characters, this action-packed mystery both enlightens and entertains.
