In the remote English countryside, tapestry weaver Clarinda Asher performs an ancient fertility ritual with a local landed man--a sacred union that ignites a firestorm and has her banished to a lonely hilltop above her village. Three hundred years later, American Jess Barlow arrives in Maidenvale as the village celebrates a diluted version of that long-ago holy day. Together with the fair's King of the May, Jess rediscovers--and ultimately reenacts--the pagan rite, which soon rips their lives apart. But the ritual's potency has been revived, and events take an unexpected turn.

Maiden's Veil won 1st place in Chanticleer Book Reviews & Media's 2012 INDIE Awards, Women's Fiction category.
