Morgana’s mother arranges a marriage for her with a drover from a couple villages over in part to keep her away from the suspicious locals and partly because the mother is dying.  Morgana, mute, is not entirely certain what to make of her gentle husband Cai, nor is he certain what he got himself into.  Unbeknownst to them, there is a black witch in town who covets their keep.  Morgana must come into her full witchly powers to save her home and husband.

Beautiful deblue winter witchscriptions of the Welsh landscape, and a love-story form the backdrop for this paranormal tale.  I liked the atmosphere of the book, almost as much of a character as the protagonists.
