The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritson: This story is gory, macabre and not for the faint of heart, but she does a great job with the period detail (1830s-70s history/medical details) and merges this with the present day relationship of a modern woman to people in this time period. It was quite suspenseful as the main character tries to research the history of the bones found in her garden. (Also available in Large Print.)
