Summary

The story of the Cumbrian witches in the small village of Bleaberry Beck is told in hushed tones and a quiet reverence that speaks of superstition and fear. Richard Henderson, Medieval Studies student at Oxford University, couldn’t be less intrigued. Picking up a ‘poppet’ from the village shop, he happily set off home with this birthday present for his little sister. But the faceless wooden doll holds the secret to a chilling curse.
