How far would you go to save yourself when the truth can’t set you free?
Set in the Scottish Lowlands in 1593, told from the point of view of three women from the same family, Burnt Offerings is
the story of Besse Duncan, a young mother whose husband is missing, who is accused of witchcraft by the man who
attempts to rape her. Destined to lose her daughter, her freedom and her life, this is the story of one woman’s fight for
vindication through a patriarchal landscape of torture and persecution while her life hangs in the balance.
