Overview

From the bestselling author of Unspeakable Things comes a modern fairy tale about four generations of Catalain witches battling the curse that threatens to destroy their already-divided family once and for all.

"Lourey expertly concocts a Gothic fusion of long-held secrets, melancholy, and resolve..." ―Publishers Weekly

"Think Alice Hoffman...spell-binding!" ―Midwest Book Review

"The novel is tightly plotted, and Lourey shines when depicting relationships―romantic ones as well as tangled links between Catalains...." ―Kirkus Reviews


Faith Falls is a snug little Minnesota town constructed over a mystery, a place where the most impressive building is a gorgeous Victorian mansion. In a concealed room beneath the mansion's twisting stairs lies the Catalain Book of Secrets. Ursula Catalain, current keeper of the Book, is content to brew spells for the locals. Some want to lose weight, others to fall in love. It's all the same to Ursula, who has little time for the outside world.

No time, that is, until the man she thought she killed decades earlier appears, brooding, powerful, and bent on revenge.

When his seductive magic lures Ursula's granddaughter into the darkness, the clashing Catalain women must settle their age-old feud or lose the girl forever.

This lush, intoxicating tale weaves together fear, love, and magic to spin a tale in the style of The Vine Witch, Practical Magic, and Garden Spells.

BONUS: Includes exquisitely-illustrated pages from the ancient Book of Secrets.
