In the sleepy rural town of Painters Mill, Ohio, the Amish and "English" residents have lived side by side for two centuries. But 16 years ago, a series of brutal murders shattered the peaceful farming community. Kate Burkholder, a young Amish girl, survived the terror of the Slaughterhouse Killer but came away from its brutality with the realization that she no longer belonged with the Amish. Now, a wealth of experience later, Kate has been asked to return to Painters Mill as Chief of Police. She's certain she's come to terms with her past - until the first body is discovered in a snowy field.

A very long and drawn out story that could have easily ended chapters before it did.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's voice was very sharp, stilted and very difficult to listen to. I enjoy Nora Roberts stories and particularly like her series however I'm very disappointed that I won't be able to listen to the remainder of this series. The narrator is just too difficult to listen to.
