Mist Over the Water book.

Mist Over The Water' is a brilliantly engaging read from start to finish, with plenty of unanswered questions and wounds left over from the turbulent past of a conquered land to keep you turning pages. The spiritual element wisping its way through might not be to everyone's taste, but personally I think it's done skillfully enough not to spoil anything, and of course, many thought for centuries that anyone with healing hands must have some sort of mystical power.

A ghost with no eyes. Dear Lord, what sort of a creature could it be? What had been done to it, and how terrible would be its wrath now that its uneasy peace had been so violently disrupted?

A ghost with no eyes. it even now plotting its unspeakable vengeance? I squeezed Sibert’s hand. It was warm, human, living, and it squeezed back. I sensed the fear retreat a little. Sibert, we must leave the island,’ I said. It’s not safe, we-’ ‘The ghost has only been seen within the abbey or, at the worse, just outside the walls,’ he said quickly

Then he had taken his gleeve and set off to catch some of the huge population of eels that the dark fen waters provided in such abundance. Or so he had hoped; in five days, his total was eight, and he had only caught those because a kindly and more experienced man had helped him. In despair, he was on the point of giving up.

This is a sensitive mix of murder mystery, magic and social history which I really enjoyed. The author seems to be enjoying her development of the Aelf Fen series. My mother's family live in this part of the world and so I can relate to the Fen country setting. However it is the tension between the old religions and social orders and the Christian ascendancy that gives so much depth and interest to this story.

I always enjoy reading these mysteries, the genre is one that I try to get whenever I see it for sale

Mysteries often spring from secrets. Actions often seem mysterious until the secret is revealed.

So it is with our main character, Lessair. She finds characters whose behavior is mysterious. And in the end discovers a hidden secret.

Lessair is an apprentice healer. And she can sense the supernatural.

An urgent request for help. A cousin has injured his foot. But why had Lessair been summoned when the cousin could have asked for help from the nearby Ely Abby?

Soon, Lessair becomes entangled with a family secret involving her friend Sibert and the death of his father.

Then, while investigating this secret, she learns of a deeper and more dangerous secret. This one could bring war and death to the land.

This was an interesting book. The liked the way the author switched back and forth from first person third person points of view.

A will written mystery with interesting well developed characters, a lot of historical facts, a fast moving story line, and an ending leading too the next book. I would recommend this book and series too anyone who enjoys a good mystery.

This is the second book, and it was even better then the first. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Very intriguing nstory. Didn't know what was up until the end.

Awesome series, one of my favorite historical writers. Can't get enough!
An apprentice healer spends more time on magical rituals than herbs.

I skipped the first book in this series because I don't like phony supernatural tales. Unfortunately, this one wasn't any better - it is NOT a historical mystery, it's woo-woo gibberish. I quit very quickly.
