As a baby, Bay was left in a basket on the porch of Nan, the local "witch". Bay knows this but is unaware of the fact that she was born with a caul, a sure sign that she may also be a witch. Growing up with Nan as her mother has been both wonderful and hard. She has been teased all her life and has had to hear all kinds of interesting tales about her mom. Is is it possible that she is really a witch?

The arrival of some old friends, and some new to the house for a long birthday weekend, brings with them some buried secrets, revelations and a little magic. By then end of the visit, Bay will have her answer, but is it the one she wanted?

I loved the mix of realism with the magical. I never knew if what I was reading was real or not, a ghost or a person, magic or imagination. It was such a lovely well written story. I enjoyed every word of it.
