See your colour in the sky, know your purpose 'til the day you die.
When Clementine is sent to the Hather House on her birthday she expects three months spent like all the other sixteen year olds - learning about her aura and its colour and determining what her purpose in life will be. Her Da saw green and became a marvellous carpenter. Her Ma saw red and reads fortunes for the Witchery Wanderers. But nothing is ever simple. She's mocked by house dwellers for being a wanderer and treated with suspicion when her colour turns out to be no normal kind of colour at all. And there's a boy who screams for her in her dreams, his mouth a blur of red panic. She wants to keep her head down and get out unscathed but when a student with no apparent colour goes missing during the night Clementine finds herself poking around in dark places and The Hather House has some horrifying secrets to share.
