Complementary in Albion | World Anvil


In 1910, Elizabeth Mason is assigned to investigate a curious magical influence at an artists colony on the coast of Norfolk. Working together with Rosemary Ditson, the midwife who spotted the oddness, they have to navigate the dynamics of the community, figure out what's happening, and make sure a baby's born alive and well.
