The Bishop’s Girl

The body had no name. It was not supposed to be there…

Jess is a researcher on a quest to give the one-hundred-year-old skeleton, discovered in the exhumed grave of a prominent bishop, an identity. But she’s not sure of her own – her career is stalling, her marriage is failing. She doesn’t want to spend hours in the archives, rifling through dusty papers in an endless search for a name. And when a young man named Hayden makes clear his interest in her, Jess has to decide what is most important to her.

Rebecca Burns is an award-winning writer of short stories and you can read more of her work at The Bishop’s Girl is her first novel. She lives with her husband and young family in Leicestershire, UK.
