I have to admit, I had a hard time turning the lights out to go to sleep after this one. Doherty keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting to find out if it’s a curse or something more pragmatic. The further you get in this series, the more it’s revealed that several of the pilgrims have prior connections to one another. I’m having a hard time remember who is who, and who knows who.
