A woman’s ability to see ghosts draws her into a journey of redemption and unexpected friendship in this
unforgettable story from the acclaimed author of A Secret History of Witches.

Beatrice Bird is plagued by ghosts. It’s a gift she’s had since she was a small child. Unfortunately, it’s a gift that has grown more intense, shifting from flashes and feelings to physical manifestations she can’t escape. In a desperate attempt for relief, Beatrice flees her home, her partner and a psychology practice in San Francisco for a remote island with only nuns and a few cows for company. She sees as few people as she possibly can. She doesn’t call home.

Then she meets Anne Iredale, a timid woman who has lost everything that matters to her. For the first time in a long time, Beatrice’s gift will be called on to help someone in need. The path to healing awaits both of them – if
Beatrice can find the courage to take the first step.

Publisher Review

A beautiful generational tale, reminiscent of Practical Magic . . . but much more expansive in scope. Grounded and real, painful and hopeful at the same time -- Laure Eve, author of THE GRACES, on A SECRET HISTORY OF WITCHES A must-read for those who like magic, love, and a little bit of feel-good feminism in their historical fiction -- LIBRARY JOURNAL on THE AGE OF WITCHES Morgan's superbly written historical novel set during the 1960s and 1970s offers a touch of the paranormal, complex and relatable characters, and resonant issues of abuse and control in a satisfying and highly relevant read . . . At once surprising, suspenseful, and thought-provoking, this may be Morgan's most compelling book yet -- BOOKLIST (starred review)
