Description - Graven Images, a Singular Village Mystery by Eleanor Sullivan
When unruly vagabonds face rigid religiosity, anything can happen. Even murder. After an itinerant artist is found hanging in a barn, local villagers are quick to blame an Irish traveller conveniently passing through town. Only his broken leg keeps him from being delivered to the authorities immediately. Adelaide, a young midwife in the 1830s settlement, suspects the killer is one of their own. At the same time, she's struggling with her own secrets and fears she'll be caught violating the society's strict religious rules. Unbeknownst to Adelaide, her husband, Benjamin, is facing threats of his own. Then suspicion falls on Adelaide's sister for the murder, and Adelaide must risk her own life to find the killer before the traveller is delivered to the authorities where he'll surely be hanged.
