Readers of the spellbinding story of Mary Newbury can finally find out what happens to her next -- thanks to a young, modern-day descendant who has an uncanny connection to the past. Agnes closed her eyes in the heat and steam of the sweat lodge. She woke to air that was dry and cold around her. She was no longer Agnes, or even Karonhisake, Searching Sky. She was no longer American or Haudenosaunee. She was English, and her name was Mary, and she woke to find that she was dying, freezing to death. It came to Agnes unbidden -- a vision of Mary Newbury, alone in the snow, dying of the cold. A vision of a young woman who had lived in the 1600s, an unusual young woman who had been driven from her Puritan settlement, accused of being a witch. It was an image of a woman whose life was about to change radically, as she embarked on an existence that defied all accepted norms -- embracing passionate independence, love, and loyalty to a proud, endangered community that accepted her as one of their own. Mary's and Agnes's lives have been separated by almost 400 years, but they are inextricably linked by more than blood. Like Mary, Agnes has special powers -- powers that Mary now seeks to ensure that the rest of her story is told.
