1695. Bridie MacKenzie has waited ten years in Scotland to join her parents in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Bridie's happiness at being reunited with her family is tempered by the reality of her new life. Her loving parents work day and night to make ends meet at their small, rough inn, and they have had to give up their religion for Puritanism under the colony's law.
Spirited Bridie refuses to conform to the rules - she vows not to give up either her faith or the healing herbs she has brought from Scotland. But all that Bridie believes in, the Puritans denounce as witchcraft. The price of holding on to her convictions may be high. Must Bridie lose her new home, her reputation, and her first true love for what she believes?
