It’s a dangerous time for a woman to be different and poverty-stricken Alinor is suspected of possessing dark secrets. During a period of superstition and witch hunts, Alinor arouses envy in her rivals and fear among the villagers, who are ready to take lethal action. Enjoy light refreshments and a book signing.
