Second in the Nell Sweeney series. In this one a young woman that works at one of the Hewitt's mills has gone missing. After both Harry and August Hewitt fair to help, the parents of the woman approach Viola, who asks Nell to investigate the matter. During the course of the first part of the novel, it is discovered that Harry Hewitt attempted to rape Nell. Fortunately she was able to escape (while leaving a satisfying scar on his face). We also find out the full story of Nell and her relationship with Duncan. This is also another storyline that is satisfying concluded with this book. Overall very well done, and the progression of Will and Nell's relationship is steady and realistic.
