Will Rees is adjusting to life on his Maine farm in 1797, but he's already hungering for the freedom of the road, and his chance to travel comes sooner than he expects. Lydia has just received a letter from her old friend Mouse, a soft-spoken and gentle woman who now lives in the Shaker community in Mount Unity, New York. To Lydia and Rees's astonishment, she's in trouble with the law. She's kidnapped five children, claiming that their mother, Maggie Whitney, is unfit to care for them. Despite the wintry weather and icy roads, Rees and Lydia set out for New York, where they sadly conclude that Mouse is probably right and the children would be better off with her. There's nothing they can do for Mouse legally, though, and they reluctantly set out for home. But before they've travelled very far, they receive more startling news: Maggie Whitney has been found murdered, and Mouse is the prime suspect. In Cradle to Grave, Eleanor Kuhns returns with the clever plotting, atmospheric historical detail, and complexly drawn characters that have delighted fans and critics in her previous books.

Professional reviews

"In the third Will Rees series, set in post-Revolutionary America, Will and his new wife, Lydia, a former Shaker, make a winter trek across Maine to New York to help Lydia's dear friend, Hannah Moore, a Shaker woman who is accused of kidnapping the five children of a neglectful mother. Narrator Susie Berneis brings warmth, intelligence, and credibility to the itinerant weaver-farmer-detective as he works to prove Hannah's innocence. When the children's mother is found murdered, Hannah becomes the prime suspect. Berneis keeps the story on an even keel with her understated delivery. As Rees attempts to uncover the truth, Berneis painstakingly develops each character in the secretive Shaker community, until the carefully buried truth is revealed. Berneis makes this worthwhile listening. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
