Güde is in trouble. She is starving, and a viciously-cold winter has descended on her medieval German village, scattering the game and birds so no one will eat. In these desperate times, her daughter-in-law needs a way to feed her children—and a way to vent her helpless anger.
When she accuses Güde of witchcraft, the trouble only deepens… because Güde isn’t sure she’s innocent.
This novel follows Güde’s struggle for truth, to figure out the reality of her soul’s status, and to hang on to life until good times return to the village.
The Witch’s Trinity was a San Francisco Chronicle Notable Book of 2007, and a Bram Stoker Award finalist.
