Here they like everything, gradually the colonists have adjusted their way of life, got used to new living conditions. After some time, the couple had another child – Samuel.
Suddenly, the pious Christian life of the farmers was disrupted – first, the corn crop died from an unknown disease, then at night the households heard terrible groans, nightmare shadows appeared in the corners of their hut. However, the most terrible event happened later – a newborn baby disappeared without a trace. At this moment, seventeen-year-old Thomasin was looking after him. Searches in the forest did not bring comforting results, and besides, Caleb met some supernatural creature on the path and was very frightened. Since then, Katherine has not stopped crying and praying. Parents are more and more convinced that the forest witch is to blame for all the misfortunes that happen to them.
