OURS introduces us to an enigmatic woman named Saint. She is a fearsome conjurer who, in the 1830s, destroys plantations all over Arkansas to rescue the people who are enslaved there. She brings those she has freed to a haven of her own creation: a town just north of St. Louis, magically concealed from outsiders, named Ours.

It is in this miraculous place that Saint’s grand experiment takes root: a truly secluded community where her people may flourish. But although Saint does her best to protect the inhabitants of Ours, over time, her conjuring and memories begin to betray her. This leaves the town vulnerable to intrusions by newcomers with powers of their own. As the cracks in Saint’s creation are exposed, some begin to wonder whether the community’s safety might be yet another form of bondage.
