They were an unlikely duo. Abigail was wrongly hanged for withcraft in the 17th century. Emma is just your ordinary modern-day emotionally disturbed kid. When they meet, their friendship becomes deadlyvery deadly!
There was nothing to hint at Bridgewaters sinister past. It was just a typical Connecticut town with a village green and a lovely cemetery dating back hundreds of years. Yet there was no indication of the witchhunts of the 17th century or the accusations and hangings as a means of getting rid of unwanted neighbors or enemies. And that's all it took; just an accusation. Fear would do the rest. Such fears didn't exist by the 1980s, especially not in such a bucolic setting. Which was why Emma's strange behavior caused her fourth-grade teacher, Carla Cayard, to become concerned. And then the strange happenings began. When Carla met Alfred Montgomery, a portly English parapsychologist, her first instinct was to silently ignore his "science." And then the bizarre deaths began. Carla was soon to learn that Alfred was their only hope of saving Emma from her destructive courseif it wasn't too late.
