Description
(Winner of the 2011 Mystery Writers of America/Minotaur Books First Crime Novel Competition) Five years ago, while William Rees was recovering from his stint as a Revolutionary War soldier, his beloved wife died. Rees left his son David in his sister's care, fled his Maine farm, and struck out for a tough life as a traveling weaver. Now returning to his farm, in Eleanor Kuhns's debut, Rees discovers that David, having been treated like a serf for years, has run away to join the Shakers. Rees follows, hoping to reconcile with David, but when a young Shaker woman is brutally murdered shortly after Rees's arrival, he must undertake a tangled investigation, in which family connections cast shadows on everyone, while the victims keep multiplying.

"Kuhns' intimate voice and all-seeing eye make [the Shaker community] seem an exotic world indeed. But she also shows that greed, envy and materialistic values are nothing if not universal."NYTBR

"Kuhns's closed-room mystery is refreshingly original, both for its setting and time period. In keeping with her protagonist's profession, Kuhns weaves together disparate threads into a beautiful finished piece."Library Journal
