With the support of Jo, a local girl happily ensconced in the community, Orla must stem the chaos caused by Mamo’s improper burial, struggling to balance her hard-won independence with her newfound ties to the town and burgeoning romantic feelings.
Family matters aren’t just hocus-pocus for this young witch!

In the wake of her Mamo’s passing, seas are impossible to fish, crops have soured, even Jo Manalo’s attic is taken over by a poltergeist! And to make matter worse it appears that the cause is Mamo, or her mislaid bones that is.
