There is a mystery and suspense in this book set in two different time frames. Michigan in 1910 is the setting for Perliett Van Hilton, a rural healer held by the local doctor as a quack. Perliett’s mother is a spiritualist who offers her expertise to connect the dead with living. But when threats come and Perliett is in danger of her life from a superstitious killer, who can she turn to? That same local doctor as well as an intriguing newcomer.

Fast forward to the present day, and Molly Wasziak, a woman whose dream for her life has not been realized. She has had several miscarriages and then faced depression. But some genealogy research pulls Molly in and she is intrigued by an old murder case all the more intriguing by the setting she finds herself in, an only farm that her husband purchased. How do these two stories intertwine and will the truth finally come out?

This reviewer found the stories set in two time periods rather hard to follow at times.
