Her healing prowess, however, attracts the attention of witchfinder Matthew Hopkins, who kindles fear and suspicion in the small village. As Mary's benevolence is misconstrued as dark arts, she must navigate a treacherous path to protect her life and her brother's, all while uncovering the truth behind a chilling murder. Amidst whispers of witchery, she seeks an alliance with an enigmatic alchemist, leading to a daring showdown that may render her a force more formidable than any witchfinder had ever feared.
