But before Lady Julia and her handsome, sleuthing husband, Nicolas Brisbane, can take to the stage, a ruckus in the stable yard demands their attention. An abandoned infant is found nestled in the steel helm of St. George. What's more, their only lead is the local legend of a haunted cottage and its ghastly inhabitant - who seems to have returned. Once again, Lady Julia and Nicholas take up the challenge to investigate, and when the source of the mystery is revealed, they'll be faced with an impossible choice - one that will alter the course of their lives... forever. Don't miss a single tale in the Lady Julia Grey series - or Deanna Raybourn's latest novel, City of Jasmine.

A story to accompany the previous novella
Setting: Sussex January 1890
This novel is in the same visit to Sussex as in the novella Silent Night. A newborn baby is found in the stable at Belmont Abbey, and it is up to Lady Julia to learn who abandoned him and why. There are some accompanying small mysteries: a ghost; missing jewelry; and the reason the Earl March is so depressed. Despite these facets, the novella is largely uneventful. However, the main event is important in the Lady Julia Grey story arc.
Aside from the stingy length and the dearth of action, there are no inconsistencies in established characters, and new ones are well done. The narration continues fine in this book, and it is appreciated that the same narrator has been used throughout the series.
