Kathy Lynn Emerson, author of How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries

“In Graven Images, Eleanor Sullivan transcends the usual historical mystery by reminding us that it takes more than laws to safeguard the rights of women—it takes courageous hearts. The result is a book both thought-provoking and entertaining.”
Joanna Campbell Slan, author of The Jane Eyre Chronicles

“Graven Images is a beautifully written, intricately crafted mystery that will keep you guessing right to its rousing conclusion.  Prepare to be drawn into the intriguing world of the Separatists and utterly beguiled by Adelaide, the midwife, healer, and indomitable woman sleuth who solves murder in a society where you’d least expect it.  Highly recommended!”
Sue Owens Wright, Braced for Murder (The Beanie and Cruiser Mysteries)

“Eleanor Sullivan has written more than a murder mystery, she weaves a story of what it is to truly love and live free within the confines of a community that demands conformity.”
Tess Collins, author of Notown
