When an Irish Catholic servant girl is accused of causing the mysterious death of a Puritan infant, midwife Catherine Williams and her Native American servant struggle to cut through the town's prejudices and clear the girl's name. Original.

From the Publisher:

....Lewis has a keen eye for period details, not only in the physical attributes of Newbury, but in the frequently odd behavior of its citizenry. The enthusiastic rush of Newburyites to witness the cruel pillorying of a thief in this tale reminds me of how far entertainment has come in 400 years, while a pseudo-courtroom scene, managed by a narrow-minded governor and a wickedly intolerant minister, is particularly well executed....it is the courageous, 50-something Catherine Williams and the defiantly proud Massaquoit who are the principal draws here.

From the Inside Flap:

"As an avid reader of mysteries and a historian of Early America, I was delighted to encounter the midwife Mistress Catherine Williams and her Pequot ally, Massaquoit. Lewis ably captures both the atmosphere and the language of seventeenth-century New England as he involves his detectives in investigating the mysterious death of a young child. This is an absorbing(and historically accurate) read." -- Mary Beth Norton, author of Founding Mothers & Fathers, Professor of American History, Cornell University.

"17th Century flavor and a strong, independent, original character make this first book in a projected series an interesting read. Steve Lewis has done his research, and it obviously pays off." -- Robert Randisi, author of Murder is the Deal of the Day.
