Mothers and daughters. Sisters. Legacies and prophecies. The inevitable and the avoidable. The sixteen stories in Patricia Lillie's debut collection feature female protagonists of various ages. Young or old, they must deal with the expectations of their twisted worlds. Some can't escape their fate, some accept it--and some will burn it down.


"Lillie makes the unreal feel all too possible.... This grim, witchy collection will grab anyone looking for a subtle fright." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
