To keep the peace in Finch, Lori helps Amelia to conceal her true identity and sets to work solving the riddle that brought Amelia to the village in the first place. A fragment of a family diary hints that Amelia might be a direct descendant of Mistress Meg, the Mad Witch of Finch. The diary's clues take Lori on a whirlwind treasure hunt through Finch's darkest and most secret nooks and crannies, all the while dodging nosy neighbors and Amelia's obsessed fans. With Aunt Dimity's otherworldly guidance, Lori pieces together the remarkable true story of Mistress Meg and uncovers a tragic chapter in Finch's past.
