The Witches of New York

The year is 1880. Some 200 years after the trials in Salem, Adelaide Thom opens a tea shop with another young woman who feels it's finally safe enough to describe herself as a witch: Eleanor St. Clair. All is well until one bright September afternoon, when Beatrice Dunn arrives at their door seeking employment.

Beatrice soon becomes indispensable as Eleanor's apprentice, but her new life with the witches is marred by strange occurrences. Eleanor wants to respect the magic manifest in the girl, but Adelaide sees a business opportunity. Amidst the witches' tug-of-war, Beatrice disappears, leaving them to wonder whether it was by choice or by force. As Adelaide and Eleanor begin the desperate search for Beatrice, they're confronted by accusations and spectres from their own pasts. (From Random House Canada)
