Gifted young Imogen Lacey, creator of glorious hats, meets Alice Brakespear, a former confidante, who sweeps her off to the northern dales town of Langesby to recuperate from a nervous breakdown.
Here, as wife of the stormy local vicar Hal, Alice plans to marry Imogen to the highly eligible Philip Gregory, who runs a home for young offenders - a man shadowed by his past, and pursued by the coldly handsome Edith Wyse.
Yet Imogen has a mind of her own. Fascinated by the ancient stone circle on Haraldstone Hill, she decides to move there and opens a shop called Crazy Hats. The dale buzzes with gossip, for Haraldstone is said to be the centre of a local coven of white witches. It is to them that Imogen is drawn, for these are strong independent women, who celebrate their natural creative powers. And this is when several strange and sinister events occur, which rouse the interest of the national press.
Imogen's life and business are threatened and she is made the object of hatred. Local rivalries come to a head and the white witches of Haraldstone learn that amongst them walks someone of a different breed, who leaves destruction, fire and death in their wake.
