Gripping page turner
I love Ms. Miller’s Bodhi series of books and none more than this one. The history of the mysterious dead woman interwoven with familiar and beloved characters and a real time murder captivated me from the first page. I couldn’t wait to turn each page and discover, along with Bodhi and Eliza, the uncovered story of the woman in the casket and Davina. The facts and supporting historical details only serves to make this novel feel more like a true story and I found myself once again learning more from this work of fantastic fiction than I ever imagined. Another gripping page-turner from Ms. Miller! I was provided an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Davina knew that fast tracking when doing archeological work to uncover the past, was not possible. With the benefactor and university wanting it done that way of getting more donations. Under a black cherry tree, land of a sharecropper, Professor Davina uncovers a iron coffin with a glass window showing a pale woman. Was it possible to be a woman from the 1800’s. Then they suspend her from the site, and she will have no credit for this discovery.
Bodhi gets a text from Bette wanting him to attend a small town conference in Alabama, An unexpected visit with Saul, brings him to accept and go to Alabama and Bette, whom his friends have not met,
While on a meditative walk he meets Davina, and she can’t believe a miracle has come with him being a consulting forensic pathologist that could authenticate the body for her. The conference he was to attended was of this discovery by the family/ benefactors. The monarch was interested in something other than the body and of which involved Davina. This turns to murder and how it ties to the coffin woman.
Meeting and learning more about Bodhi, his silent ways, and how he gets to view the body. Once again the author has given us a plot that is rich in detail of her find, more about Bodhi and Bette. A story to reread, and enjoy more each time, with it being part of a good series.
