    In March 1619 two sisters, Margaret and Phillipa Flower, were executed after a trial for witchcraft that had been especially notorious because their alleged victims were the Earl of Rutland and his family at Belvoir Castle. Borman uses the rich contemporary sources for the Flower case to investigate the beliefs about witchcraft that enabled this miscarriage of justice, but she also emphasizes its unusual features, and reveals how, behind events at Belvoir, lay a murderous conspiracy at the Jacobean court.
