About the book..
A gripping, unforgettable tale of a mother’s desperate search for a lost boy.
Anna Winger can know people better than they know themselves with only a glance—at their handwriting. Hired out by companies wanting to land trustworthy employees and by the lovelorn hoping to find happiness, Anna likes to keep the real-life mess of other people at arm’s length and on paper. But when she is called to use her expertise on a note left behind at a murder scene in the small town she and her son have recently moved to, the crime gets under Anna’s skin and rips open her narrow life for all to see. To save her son—and herself—once and for all, Anna will face her every fear, her every mistake, and the past she thought she’d rewritten.

"An enjoyably complex mystery with a clever heroine neatly interweaves detailed historical background with fascinating characters." - Kirkus
"Calkins’ fourth in the Lucy Campion series illustrates seventeenth-century English medical practice and class structure in the course of spinning an involving tale. Solid historical mystery, with intriguing hints about the future." - Booklist
