A Passionate Spirit
She is young, attractive, is married to a priest who is less than conventional and together they have a beautiful baby daughter and they move to what should be a delightful new home in the idyllic Cotswold hills.
So, given that set of circumstances, what on earth could possibly go wrong?
Well... there's the dreams, you see? The recurring nightmare dream in which Zoe dreams of a young woman who is fleeing, fleeing for her life.
Zoe is disturbed by these dreams and she also has a darkening sense of foreboding. For somehow, Zoe knows that the life of her precious baby is at risk. As is her own life.
At which point, things become more sinister, as two totally unexpected guests arrive at their home. James and Natasha.
But there's nothing wrong with James and Natasha, surely?
However, Zoe's friend Alice wouldn't agree. For some reason she cannot quite trust the new couple. Even more so, Natasha.
But only Zoe agrees with Alice. Everyone else seems to trust them.
Natasha soon sets to work proving her abilities as a very talented healer. A very talented healer, indeed. In fact some say her healings are nothing short of miraculous and that Natasha is a miracle worker.
But the sense of dis-ease and foreboding will not leave Zoe.
But Zoe knows that she must challenge Natasha. But can she be prepared for the forces that she is suddenly confronted with? The sheer, stark terror that she will face?
Will she and her stalwart, true friend Alice be able to prevail against the malevolent forces that are suddenly directed toward them?
