Thores-Cross by Karen Perkins

Thores-Cross by Karen PerkinsA haunting novel set in the North Yorkshire Moors about isolation, superstition and persecution, Thores-Cross follows the stories of Emma, a present day writer, and Jennet, an eighteenth century witch. 

Emma Moorcroft is still grieving after a late miscarriage and moves to her dream house at Thruscross Reservoir with her Husband, Dave. Both Emma and Dave hope that moving into their new home signifies a fresh start, but soon realise that life is not that simple. Emma has nightmares about the reservoir and the drowned village that lies beneath the water, and is 
further disturbed by the sound of church bells – from a church that no longer exists.   

Jennet is fifteen and lives in the isolated community of Thores-Cross, where life revolves about the sheep they rear. Following the sudden loss of both her parents she is seduced by the local wool merchant, Richard Ramsgill. She becomes pregnant and is shunned not only by Ramsgill, but by the entire village. Lonely and embittered, Jennet's problems escalate, leading to tragic consequences which continue to have an effect through the centuries.   

Emma becomes fixated on Jennet, neglecting herself, her husband, even her dogs, to the point where her marriage may not survive. As Jennet and Emma's lives become further entwined, Emma's obsession deepens and she realises that the curse Jennet inflicted on the Ramsgill family over two hundred years ago is still claiming lives. Emma is the only one who can stop Jennet killing again, but will her efforts be enough?
