Summary
Tora Hamilton is an outsider at her new home on the rocky, wind-swept Shetland Islands, a hundred miles from the northeastern tip of Scotland. Though her husband grew up here, it's the first time he's been back in twenty years. Digging in the peat on their new property, Tora unearths a human body, at first glance a centuries-old bog body, interesting but not uncommon. But realizing that the body is in fact much newer, that the woman's heart has been cut out and that she was killed within a few days of bearing a child, Tora, herself an obstetrician, becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to her--even when the police, her colleagues and eventually her husband warn her against getting involved
Summary
Despite warnings from her husband, her colleagues, and local police, obstetrician Tora Hamilton is determined to uncover the truth about the gruesome discovery she makes while digging on their new property in the Shetland Islands--the body of a young woman, killed within a few days of bearing a child and with her heart cut out
