This isn't one of ms. Renehart's mysteries, but it is an interesting story. Characters are well developed and so are their intertwined tales. There's even a bit of intrigue and revenge. Like all novels in a post Victorian era, violence is minimal and sex unmentionable, and the tale unfolds slowly as did life before WWI. So read this one when one when you have time to cozy up with it, when you want to escape the noise, sloppy language, violence and gratuitous sex of today's world.
