1679. Holborn, London.

In a well-to-do house in Rotten Row, mysterious and frightening events throw the servants into deep alarm. When those events intensify around house servant Mary, she becomes the focus of suspicion and speculation.

Mary discovers she is more entangled with the unwelcome guest than she cares to be. Trapped there, she’s forced to expose a macabre secret hidden for fifteen years. If she fails, she will bear the consequences...

From award-winning* author of The Popish Midwife* comes the second Seventeenth Century Midwives tale. This novella, closely based on A New Ballad of The Midwives Ghost (meticulously collected by Samuel Pepys) brings to life the sights, the sounds and the heart of the era.
