Lucy Campion, a ladiesâ€™ maid turned printerâ€™s apprentice in
17th-century London, is crossing Holborn Bridge over the
murky waters of the River Fleet one morning when, out of the
mist, she sees a specter moving toward her. Frightened at
first, Lucy soon realizes the otherworldly figure is in fact
a young woman, clearly distraught and clad only in a
blood-spattered white nightdress. Barely able to speak, the
woman has no memory of who she is or whatâ€™s happened to her.
The townspeople believe sheâ€™s possessed. But Lucy is
concerned for the womanâ€™s well-being and takes her to see a
physician. When, shockingly, the woman is identified as the
daughter of a nobleman, Lucy is asked to temporarily give up
her bookselling duties to discreetly serve as the womanâ€™s
companion while she remains under the physicianâ€™s care.
As the woman slowly recovers, she beginsâ€”with Lucyâ€™s helpâ€”to
reconstruct the terrible events that led her to Holborn
Bridge that morning. But when it becomes clear the womanâ€™s
safety might still be at risk, Lucy becomes unwillingly
privy to a plot with far-reaching social implications, and
sheâ€™ll have to decide just how far sheâ€™s willing to go to
protect the young woman in her care.
Susanna Calkins has drawn a richly detailed portrait of a
time in history and a young woman struggling against the
bounds of her society in her next absorbing Lucy Campion
