"Will Rees is back home on his farm in 1796 Maine with his teenage son, his pregnant wife, their five adopted children, and endless farm work under the blistering summer sun. But for all that, Rees is happy to have returned to Dugard, Maine, the town where he was born and raised, and where he's always felt at home. Until now. When a man is found dead - murdered - after getting into a public dispute with Rees, Rees starts to realize someone is intentionally trying to pin the murder on him. Then, his farm is attacked, his wife is accused of witchcraft, and a second body is found that points to the Rees family. Rees can feel the town of Dugard turning against him, and he knows that he and his family won't be safe there unless he can find the murderer and reveal the truth...before the murderer gets to him first"--Provided by publisher.

Such a fantastic book! I loved the riveting characters and the suspense. A long book but was worth the final reveal!

Number 5 in this series of a weaver, Will Rees, in Maine, after the Revolutionary War. Excellent story and the details of life in that period are riveting.

Will Rees' terrible temper comes home to roost. One of the people who hate him has begun killing people and framing him for the murders, as well as accusing his wife of being a witch. In order to solve the problem, Will and his teenage son, David, send Will's pregnant wife, Lydia, and their five adopted children to the Shaker community at Zion. Will has several suspects and goes around and around trying to decide which person is the murderer. The solution was a complete surprise and the ending was rather open, leading, I suspect, to broader possibilities for future books.
