This book is a historical fiction that takes place in Hackettstown, NJ. Rachel is newly married to Adam, who comes from a long line of cemetery keepers at Union Cemetery. Rachel becomes intrigued by the monument I the cemetery for a girl named Tillie who was raped and murdered in 1886. Rachel is drawn into finding out more about Tillie and who really murdered her. As Rachel is looking for information about Tillie, she’s recollecting her own traumatic life and finding similarities with Tillie and herself. I really enjoyed this book and I loved the references for the many places in Hackettstown including Centenary College.
