Forced to Spy for Grave Robbers
True Colors – Fiction Based on Strange-But-True History
In 1824, Josephine Clayton is considered dead by everyone in her Massachusetts village—especially the doctor she has assisted for several months. Yet, she is still very much alive.
After the doctor’s illegal dealing with his body snatcher to obtain her body, Josephine awakens, positioned as the next corpse for his research. To cover up his crime, the doctor tries to kill her, but Josephine begs to be spared. They strike a deal—Josephine will leave her village and work at a distant cotton mill. All the while, she’ll await her true mission—posing as a mourner to help the body snatcher procure her replacement.
At the mill though, Josephine is praised for her medical remedies among the other female workers, gaining attention from the handsome factory manager, Braham Taylor. Yet, when Braham’s own loved one becomes the prey for the next grave robbing, Josie must make a choice that could put her dark past behind her or steal away the promise of any future at all.
What price will Josie pay for love when her secrets begin to unravel?

    Murderer or setup?

    Published by Christena Kaufman on Aug 16th 2019

    The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken is set in 1824 when grave robbers were active.
    Josephine Clayton died and was buried. When dug up by the grave robbers and brought to Dr. Chadwick for autopsy to search for new cures it was discovered she was alive. She was then enlisted to work with the grave robbers to settle a debt her father owes. Josie Clay goes to work at a cotton mill where accidental deaths happen often. Braham runs the mill and is very concerned for workers safety. He also takes special notice of Josie. Will Josie ever pay the debt?
    I liked this book and finished it though at times I felt it made little sense and moved along too slowly. It seemed every character was keeping some kind of secret for someone. There wasn’t a great focus on Christianity or living out Christian principles. The mill did close on Sunday and all the workers were expected to attend church. Also, Josie shows she has a conscience when someone she cares about dies and she is to assist with the grave robbing. I give this book 4 of 5 stars.
    I received an advance copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
