Review:

The physical and emotional scars of the Revolutionary War are an important part of this tremendous new first mystery -- the most exciting debut since Laurie R. King and The Beekeeper's Apprentice. Like King's Mary Russell, the heroine of Lawrence's book is an unconventional woman, unwilling to be forced into an historical mold. Hannah Trevor is a gifted, educated midwife who carries wisdom and sorrow with her in equal measures: one husband and three children dead, another daughter born out of wedlock and deaf. When a young woman is raped and murdered, leaving behind a note that implicates her daughter's father, Hannah is the only person in the small Maine town of Rufford with enough insight and experience to uncover the truth.

Margaret Lawrence has written for film and the theater. She is the author of previous novels, each set in post-Revolutionary War America: Hearts and Bones, -- which was nominated for the Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Awards for Best Novel -- The Burning Bride, and Blood Red Roses.
