The Glass Woman
An isolated, windswept land haunted by witch trials and steeped in the ancient sagas . . .
But R sa harbours her own suspicions. Her husband buried his first wife alone in the dead of night. He will not speak of it.
The villagers mistrust them both. Dark threats are whispered. There is an evil here - R sa can feel it. Is it her husband, the villagers - or the land itself?
Alone and far from home, R sa sees the darkness coming.
She fears she will be its next victim . . .
