Two hundred years after the trials in Salem, Adelaide Thom has left her life in the sideshow to open a tea shop with another young woman who feels it's finally safe enough to describe herself as a witch: a former medical student and gardien de sorts, Eleanor St Clair. Together they cater to Manhattan's high society ladies, specialising in cures, palmistry and potions - and in guarding the secrets of their clients. All is well until one bright September afternoon, when an enchanting young woman named Beatrice 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. She sees things no one else can see. She hears voices no one else can hear. Objects appear out of thin air, as if gifts from the dead. Has she been touched by magic or is she simply losing her mind?
