Susan Wittig Albert has won critical acclaim and a devoted following
for her China Bayles mysteries featuring beloved herb shop and tearoom owner
China. In Wormwood, the death of a woman in a pool—where a Shaker
woman drowned in 1912—sets the stage for a perplexing whodunit.
Evil can worm its way
into the purest of hearts.
China Bayles needs rest, and a historic Shaker village in Kentucky seems
the ideal place for it. There she can learn about the intriguing, dwindling
Shaker culture and its medicinal herbs. Unfortunately, the village is plagued
with misfortune and strife. China wonders if, with the help of some age-old
journals full of scandal, she can get to the bottom of it. But after a shocking
death occurs during her stay, China will plunge into the archives of another
time to connect the sins of the past with a modern-day murder.
