And guess who their ancestors were?<br /><br /> If dealing with that weren’t enough, Sam also comes face to face with a real, live (well, technically dead) ghost. A handsome, <i>angry</i> ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff. But soon Sam discovers she is at the center of a centuries-old curse&#xa0;affecting anyone with ties to the trials. Sam must come to terms with the ghost and find a way to work with the Descendants to stop a deadly cycle that has been going on since the first accused witch was hanged.

Description :  <b>Una scia di morti che si ripete da secoli secondo un identico modello. <br />Un amore pronto a sfidare il tempo.</b> <br /><br />Salem, ai giorni nostri: quando Samantha Mather si trasferisce nell'antica casa avita per stare vicina al padre, ricoverato perché misteriosamente in coma, trova in città un’accoglienza piuttosto fredda. Sono passati ormai tre secoli da quando il suo antenato Cotton Mather è stato protagonista del processo alle streghe, firmando il trattato usato a fondamento delle condanne, ma i rancori che allora avevano spaccato la comunità sono ancora terribilmente vivi. Isolata e avvolta dall'ostilità gelida degli Eredi delle presunte streghe, Samantha si trova intrappolata in un complicato groviglio in cui passato e presente si intrecciano pericolosamente. Soltanto Jaxon, figlio della migliore amica del padre e segretamente attratto dalla ragazza, sembra immune a quell'odio, almeno finché Samantha non entra in contatto con l’affascinante Elijah, uno spirito tragicamente coinvolto nelle antiche vicende storiche, e le cose si complicano. Samantha scopre un modello ricorrente nei secoli, in base al quale le famiglie dei perseguitati e dei persecutori pagano un terribile tributo di morti. C’è solo una speranza per evitare che la storia si ripeta: svelare i segreti del passato fra odi antichi e passioni, e rinunciare a qualcosa di sé per aprirsi a un sentimento nuovo.
