It is 1796 Maine, and widower Will Rees has just learned his 14-year-old son is no longer living under his sister and brother-in-law’s roof. If the former soldier-turned-traveling weaver had known they would abuse David, he wouldn't have left the boy, who has taken refuge in a Shaker community. But reconciling with David proves to be the least of Will’s problems after a young Shaker woman is murdered and he is accused.
Eleanor Kuhns’ A Simple Murder grows more harrowing for Will when, after a solid alibi clears him of suspicion, the Shaker elders ask him to investigate Sister Charity’s death. For when he does, relying on insights provided by Miss Farrell, a woman disgraced, Will discovers that even the pious can have unholy secrets.
