At first glance, the unassuming Mrs Amelia Thistle is a disappointment to the curious villagers of Finch. Only Lori Shepherd isn't fooled by the new arrival's bland persona, and she promptly discovers Amelia is a world-famous artist, living incognito.
Amelia has unearthed a fragment of a family diary hinting that Mistress Meg, The Mad Witch of Finch, might be one of her ancestors, and she's determined to discover the truth. With the otherworldly help of her late Aunt Dimity, Lori must dodge nosy neighbours and Amelia's frantic fans if she's to solve the mystery of Mistress Meg - and Amelia herself.
