Author Event: Maryann McFadden - Cemetary Wife What happens when the line between the past and the present begins to blur… Rachel Miller is on the cusp of a new life when she moves to Union Cemetery after marrying Adam, the 7th generation cemetery keeper. Though she’s known him only twelve weeks, his tender love seems like a miracle of fate after her years alone. On her first walk through the lush and silent grounds of her new home, Rachel discovers a stunning monument to Tillie Smith, who died in 1886. Reading the words carved into the stone, “She Died in Defence of Her Honor,” Rachel is overcome by a powerful memory buried deep in her past. A series of uncanny coincidences linked to Tillie Smith follows, setting Rachel on a journey that grows into an obsession: Why did the murder of a poor kitchen maid at the local seminary become a national sensation? Why were people in town trying to keep her from finding the truth? But most disturbing of all, why was Tillie reawakening a past Rachel chose to bury long ago? A past that could threaten her marriage. The Cemetery Keeper’s Wife poignantly blends fact and fiction as two women scarred by shame, and separated by more than a century, reach across time to rewrite history. Author Bio: Maryann McFadden is the author of 3 Indie Next Pick’s The Richest Season (A Target Breakout Novel), So Happy Together, and The Book Lover. Her novels have been translated into multiple languages. Her unusual publishing journey from self-published to major book deal (with early support from Park Road Books) has inspired many writers.
