Local gossip suggests that he was secretly engaged to one of the three lovely sisters who reside at Wayside Cross - but which one?

Are they really witches, as the gossips also claim?And what does all this have to do with the mysterious Shrieking Pits and a mother desperate to find her missing baby?
