About the Book

This is a story about witchcraft. In 1926, a six-year-old boy named Juan Aguilar goes on a camping trip with his family to Questa, New Mexico. He runs into a cursed house, and he is mysteriously transported back in time to 1826. He is taken in by a local family, and he slowly starts to discover why this house was cursed, that many other children have suffered the same fate, and ten years later finds his way back to his family in Albuquerque. When he returns home, no one believes his strange story of Bella the witch and the notorious witch hunter, Luciano del Valle. Years later, as an adult, he writes his story of witchcraft in rural New Mexico.
