Annotation: Nola is not much of a witch--she can work a few useless spells, like one that lets her enchant a bucket of water to spy on people. But there's no spell keeping her mother--who hears voices and is a magnet for witch-hunters--out of trouble. The two of them evade authorities while traveling from town to town--until one day Nola magically witnesses a murder.
