Roanoke and the Witch is a novel of dark fantasy set in England and Roanoke Island in the late 1500s. Based on historical events and characters, Roanoke and the Witch examines the transformative power of greed, hate, fear, and love's redemption. For nearly two hundred years, the Rusalka, a malicious corpse-like water creature, has hunted Agatha's family of witches, picking off her ancestors one by one. Now, eight-year-old Agatha is the last family member left. She must survive Elizabethan England, where witchfinders prowl the villages, and the Rusalka stalks the rivers and ponds. The narrative follows her as she grows up, finds and loses family, friends, and love, and eventually voyages to the New World and Roanoke Island, where more danger awaits.
