The Witch's Tale by Margaret Frazer
Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live...
Witchcraft has come to the peaceful village near St. Frideswide, and its foul touch is striking down those closest to the church. Can Dame Frevisse thwart the servants of the devil before the hellfire of hysteria sears the souls of the faithful? Or is there more to this magic than meets the eye? The truth can only be found in the Witch's Tale.
(The Witch's Tale is part of the Margaret Frazer's Tales series of short stories.)
