Haelewise has always lived under the shadow of her mother, Hedda. With her strange black eyes and even stranger fainting spells, she is shunned by her village, and her only solace lies in the stories her mother tells of child-stealing witches, of princes in wolf-skins, of an ancient tower cloaked in mist, where women will find shelter if they are brave enough to seek it. Then Hedda dies, and Haelewise sets out to find the legendary tower her mother used to speak of --- a place called Gothel, where Haelewise meets a wise woman willing to take her under her wing. But Haelewise is not the only woman to seek refuge at Gothel. It’s also a haven for a girl named Rika, who carries with her a secret the Church strives to keep hidden.
