#CALLED TO JUSTICE By Edith Maxwell

PEACE


The second in this historical Quaker Midwife series. It is set in a New England factory town in 1888 depicting life in the area. Historical details, the Quaker faith, and birthing details are accurate. The birthing data may bother some. I have not read the first but I had no trouble understanding narrative.

Rose Carroll is attending the July 4th celebration when an unmarried Quaker, Hannah informs her that she is pregnant. She refuses to name the father saying they cannot marry.

That evening during the fireworks display, Hannah is shot. A former slave and Quaker is arrested for the murder Rose feels he is not guilty and begins to search for a different answer. Rose has plenty to keep her busy. She is chaperoning her niece, Faith, attending several births, and continuing her affair with Dr. David Dodge. The ending will surprise you. I recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Midnight Ink through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

The cover attracted my attention and the synopsis sound good so I requested it. This The first book I have read from this author, although it is the 18th book in the Fethering series, it work quite well as a standalone.

Fethering in is a small town in England. Two sleuths, Carol and Jude work together to solve mysteries.

Jude is host to an author affair by Burton St Clair who is an author of a bestselling book. He has made many enemies as he is a womanizer and has a strong ego. He made a pass at Jude who publicly slaps him. When he found dead the next day Jude is at the top of the suspect’s list. She works with Carol to clear her name. I highly recommend this book.
