Cover Her Body

In a strict, religious society in 1830s rural Ohio, a 16-year-old girl is murdered because she's pregnant, but the only person who suspects it wasn't an accident is Adelaide, a young midwife, who worries that the remedy she gave the girl for a "woman's ailment" caused her death. Adelaide's husband, Benjamin, fearful that they'll be banned from the prosperous community, forbids her from questioning the girl's death.

Publisher's Summary

Death was not uncommon in 1830s Ohio. But murder?

In a strict, religious society in 1830s rural Ohio, a 16-year-old girl is murdered because she's pregnant, but the only person who suspects it wasn't an accident is Adelaide, a young midwife, who worries that the remedy she gave the girl for a "woman's ailment" caused her death. Adelaide's husband, Benjamin, fearful that they'll be banned from the prosperous community, forbids her from questioning the girl's death. But a mistake she made years ago cost the life of a mother and her unborn babe, and Adelaide vowed to never let another mother die.

Pressure mounts when Adelaide is accused of harming the girl, but the allegation only fuels her determination to find the killer, even though she begins to suspect that her husband might be involved in the girl's death. And the more she investigates, not only does she start to question her own faith and beliefs, but she finds herself attracted to an unlikely man in the community, a man who has vowed to remain celibate. Then her questions alert the outside authorities, and now this isolated community is invaded by the very society they had shunned.

    "Must Read For Mystery/Historical Ficton Buffs!"

    A well written and informative depiction of a young women's life and trials in 1830s Zoar, Ohio- Cover Her Body was the perfect mixture of mystery and historical fiction. The main character, Adelaide, is stubborn yet likeable and the supporting characters provide an uncanny glimpse of life in a Separatist Community.

    Moira Driscoll was phenomenal in her delivery. I've listened to a great deal of audio books, and her voice really stands out as one of the top notch readers.

    Cover Her Body kept me entertained from start to finish! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and enjoyable read. I am looking forward to see what's next from Eleanor Sullivan.
