Very authentic and very bloody period mystery with 2 strong female characters. Written by a historian and based on a real person, the book is very illuminating about the time period. Recommend for historical mystery fans and I loved the fact that Bridget was not modernized -- she espouses beliefs of the time period, however shocking they are to us.
