ALTERNATIVE ENDING by MARY FARMER
In 1630s New England, after a dispute with the church of his village, a devout Puritan father packs up his family and leaves the relative safety of their colonial plantation to settle on a remote plot of land at the edge of a dark forest. Several months later, after their crops fail, their newborn son disappears and another child seemingly becomes possessed by an evil spirit, the family begins to unravel over fears they have been cursed.
