Impassioned Clay

By Stevie Davies

Published Jan 2010

When Olivia’s mother dies and her frave is dug in the back garden of the family home, the skeleton of a seventeenth-century woman is uncovered beneath the layers of Cheshire clay. The remains are crushed, the neck broken and the bones fragile and decayed. But one thing remains intact – a scold’s bridle. Only when Olivia delves back into history to unearth the story of this silenced woman does she begin to understand her own passions.
