The Bishop's Girl - Rebecca Burns

Stunning! Fits perfectly! :)

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.

My thoughts and opinion:
4,5 Stars!

The main character Jess works on a little research team who's quest is to find out who the skeleton is that has been found in the grave of a infamous bishop. They've been working on it for 6 years and it's slowly coming to an end: they're either tired of searching with no result, too old or are sick and tired of having no time for their family. But then they have the opportunity to finally have a result and a trip to France begins, where the Bishop stayed for a while. Is the skeleton his wife? Daughter? Or someone else no one knew about?!

I loved the fact that you get a bit of background information about the Bishop himself as well as the skeleton and how they met around WW1. It was also great to learn a bit more about Jess and her private life and how that whole research is literally taking the best of everyone. It was an interesting yet heartbreaking story and I'm happy I got the chance to read it.

Thank you so much Rebecca for sending me this book! I truly enjoyed it.
