Overview

Lucy Campion, a ladies maid turned printer s apprentice in 17th-century London, is crossing Holborn Bridge over the murky waters of the River Fleet one morning when, out of the mist, she sees a specter moving toward her. Frightened at first, Lucy soon realizes the otherworldly figure is in fact a young woman, clearly distraught and clad only in a blood-spattered white nightdress. Barely able to speak, the woman has no memory of who she is or what s happened to her. The townspeople believe she s possessed. But Lucy is concerned for the woman s well-being and takes her to see a physician. When, shockingly, the woman is identified as the daughter of a nobleman, Lucy is asked to temporarily give up her bookselling duties to discreetly serve as the woman s companion while she remains under the physician s care.

As the woman slowly recovers, she begins with Lucy s help to reconstruct the terrible events that led her to Holborn Bridge that morning. But when it becomes clear the woman s safety might still be at risk, Lucy becomes unwillingly privy to a plot with far-reaching social implications, and she ll have to decide just how far she s willing to go to protect the young woman in her care.

Susanna Calkins has drawn a richly detailed portrait of a time in history and a young woman struggling against the bounds of her society in her next absorbing Lucy Campion mystery."
