When Mary's long-ago love interest -- Salem native John Alden -- returns from war duty to find the town paralyzed by fear of a witch hunt, her plans take an unexpected turn. Against a backdrop of townspeople pledging to rid Salem of evil by any means necessary, Mary and John are thrust into a world where horror, hysteria and the supernatural reign. Mary must fend off adversaries, old and new, who are vying for her throne. What really fueled the infamous witch trials in 17th-century Massachusetts?
