This a historical intrigue. The story unfolds during the 1830s and highlights the living conditions, concerns and sentiments of the time. I felt very connected, and was drawn in to the mindset each of the main characters. The story has enough twists and turns so as not to be transparent. The writing style is refined, and in itself, helps transport the reader back into that era. I would read the story again, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction and "who donnits".
