The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Julia Hamill has bought her first home and finds a very ancient skeleton buried in the yard. Through a series of old letters and clippings from 1830 begins to uncover the story of the woman who was buried there. Letters from Oliver Weldell Holmes, Sr. give a picture of the Boston Medical College and his classmates, one of whom touches the life of the woman buried in Julia's yard. This is also the story of the plight of the Irish, especially young Irish girls who are eking out a living.
