Elspeth Reoch is an unlikely heroine. Born in the Scottish Highlands of the 17th century to a humble peasant family, her prospects are mundane: she hopes for nothing more than marriage to the man she’s fallen in love with…

But he’s already married.

And she’s pregnant.

Exiled by her family, and forced to bear her baby alone, Elspeth takes comfort in a very unusual visitor: a ghost who claims to know the secrets of the faeries. Learning their spells gives her the power to heal the sick, and provide for her child—but this forbidden magic also demands a sacrifice greater than any she’d ever imagined.

This is a beautifully written story and graphics about a tragic incident. It traces the story of a woman who lived in the early 1600's in Scotland and was infamously tried as a witch. Telling more may spoil it for the reader, but it is very creative. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
