It’s New York in 1880. Beatrice travels to New York believing that she may find her fate there, answering an advertisement for work at a tea shop. There she discovers that she has certain skills and the tea-shop owners, witches Eleanor and Adelaide, take her under their wing. But not everyone is accepting of witches. There is danger.
I love the world that McKay has created, taking from the true history of New York at the time, adding in some kick-arse women and making stuff happen. This is absolutely screaming for an adaptation, it would make a really wonderful TV series. Dark, magical, and ace.
