Archaeologist Sage Westfield has been called in to excavate a sixteenth-century well, and expects to find little more than soil and the odd piece of pottery. But the disturbing discovery of the bones of a woman and newborn baby make it clear that she has stumbled onto an historical crime scene, one that is interwoven with an unsettling local legend of witchcraft and unrequited love. Yet there is more to the case than a four-hundred-year-old mystery. The owners of a nearby cottage are convinced that it is haunted, and the local vicar is being plagued with abusive phone calls. Then a tragic death makes it all too clear that a modern murderer is at work...

This was a nice read. The writing was done well, the dual mystery was presented in such a way that held my interest, and the characters were rich and well-developed. Credulity was occasionally stretched, but only mildly, and while I noted it, it didn't distract from the story. The writer did her homework on getting the archaeology correct, as well as showing considerable knowledge of the Tudor era. Would read more from this author.
