Publisher's Summary

This four-century long story begins when beautiful and accomplished Rowan Mayfair pulls the drowned body of Michael Curry from the sea and brings him back to life. She is aware that she possesses special powers, but unaware that she comes from a great dynasty of witches. He, in his brief interlude with death, has acquired sensory abilities that mystify and frighten him. Fiercely drawn to each other, the two fall in love and set out to solve the mystery of her past and his unwelcome gift. Their quest takes the listener from today's San Francisco and New Orleans to 17th-century France to an ornate antebellum townhouse in the Civil War South. Dark dramas of seduction and death are played out as this enticing story reaches its startling climax in New Orleans on Christmas Eve - the ultimate witching hour.
The Witching Hour is Volume 1 of The Mayfair Witches series.

only 4 hours

the story is wonderful, I've read it before. I purchased this not realising that it is only 4 hours of audio. I know.there is so much more to the story. I was disappointed. Perhaps it should be made more clear on purchase page.
