Indira Simon’s stunningly real dreams are beginning to attack her. When one nightmare has her waking with welts on her arms, she knows it’s time to get help. A lapsed Wiccan, Indira contacts her local High Priestess. But help comes from a more unusual source. Father Thomas has petitioned the court to leave the priesthood when the legend he has heard all his life — of three witches returning to help their master — shows signs of being real. He believes Indira is one of the witches. As Indira’s dreams grow more dangerous, and love begins to spark between these two, it will take a major miracle for them to survive.
