Hanna Trevor, midwife in Rufford Maine has believed her husband to be dead for months when a series of murders occurs in her town in the midsts of summer. Her supposedly dead husbands' body, along with that of his new wife and children, is found the night of the harvest festival. Hanna is immediately a suspect, as a footprint left in blood shows the killer to be female.
Of course Hanna didn't do it. We know this because some chapters in this book, as in the previous, are devoted to the murderer's perspective. (This is a great writing style for mystery books.) The story in this book is fascinating and augmented by Hannah being called before an orphan master's court to prove she can provide for her child, who is also the illegitimate daughter of her lover Daniel (note: the love story in this book is very sweet and tender.)
I liked this book a lot and would recommend it highly. Be warned though, like the first book in this series it is quite dark. Insane people seem to crop frequently in these books and the way they're insanity is described is both horrifying and very accurate. In fact, I've never seen mental distress portrayed so well in writing before.
I rank this a sold 4.5 stars.
