Description: When Dora, the village prostitute, is found dead at the bottom of a ravine, everyone in her rural community is strangely shaken. The men grieve, of course -- but it's not just they who are affected, for the charismatic Dora touched everyone around her. At the center of those who mourn is the novel's narrator, a young maid serving the mistress of the local manor house, who sets out to unravel the complex web of secrets that lies behind Dora's death. This obsessive quest takes her back and forth between high and low society and eventually leads her to a terrible discovery and the beginnings of a future.

Through the captivating and unfaltering voice of this appealing narrator, Betsy Tobin brilliantly illuminates the Elizabethan obsession with the body -- or "bone house" -- and its primary role in determining one's destiny. In rendering so vividly both the privileges and privation of Elizabethan village life, she has crafted an uncommonly graceful and riveting first novel.
