The Witch in the Well

In the small town of F— two young girls become summer friends. Cathy lives on a neighboring farm and Elena comes from the big city every year to spend time with her beloved Uncle John. He lives on a large old estate they deem “the castle.” At 12 years old the two girls roam free, spending their days exploring the forest and swimming at the lake while drinking lemonade. As teens the girls drift, Cathy deeply resents that Elena has better things to do and does not come to F— anymore, while her life remains rather desolate. Years later Elena is a successful influencer and novelist. She finally returns to F— to clear out Uncle John’s estate when he passes away. Cathy has spent the last years obsessed and researching the local town archives of Ilsbeth Clark, a woman accused of witchcraft that drowned in the infamous well hundreds of years ago. A well that apparently many have lost their lives to since. The eventual reunion between the two old friends is bitter and awkward. As the summer slowly passes it becomes clear that Elena has a similar novel in mind initiating a nasty feud. Chock-full of witches, daemons and spirits, this creepy tale becomes deadly when the unimaginable truth is revealed. Perfect for Halloween!  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
