Isabelle Goudie has married dour farmer John Gilbert, and life is dull, drab and celibate. A beautiful, young woman, full of life, she dreams of love and excitement. How can she possibly find a way to realize her dreams? Enter the Devil. And before she knows it, Isabelle is head-over-heels in love and lust with the King of Darkness. And He, too, has become smitten with Isabelle, whose spiritual powers perfectly complement his own energies. But there are choices for Isabelle between the powers of good and evil. Which path will she choose? This 1915 tale is based on facts concerning the real woman who became caught up in the Scottish witch trials. Brodie-Innes, a dabbler in diabolism through his association with the Order of the Golden Dawn, recreates the climate of anti-witchcraft and anti-Catholicism in 17th Century Scotland.
