"Sister Witch" is inspired by a historical figure's life- a sordid tale that's been near and dear to my heart since the campfires of my youth. Some of the greatest tales I've known, I first heard there. Moll Dyer led a tragic life and was cast as a pariah for her non-conformance. After 300 years, perhaps we are finally able to shine the light of reason on the horrors done to her. Stare them in the eye and plead for forgiveness.
