Her roguish husband now dead, Lady Appleton, travels with a new suitor to Maidstone. While there, she learns that two gentlewomen, Constance Crane and her elderly cousin Lucy, are being jailed for bewitching two men to death-and face execution if convicted. Although Constance happens to be a former mistress of Robert, Susanna puts the past to rest and vows to help.
Using her vast knowledge of herbs-and the talents of her gossiping housekeeper-Lady Appleton soon deduces that the deaths are the work of a mysterious poisoner. But can she root out the killer before Constance and Lucy face the gallows-and before Susanna's own life is threatened?
Emerson once again "makes the early stages of the reign of Elizabeth I come gloriously to life" (The Midwest Book Review) in the fifth installment of this sparkling series.
