    I enjoyed this small book a lot. As a nurse, I found the descriptions of medievel medicine interesting and found that the surgeon did a lot of nursing as part of his services. Appreciated the glossary at the beginning of the book. The writer provides a good picture of the times without overwhelming with the difficulties of those times

    I love historical friction and "The Unquiet Bones" was great! Some of the verbage unique to medieval times that the author used was somewhat foreign, and not all of these terms were included in the brief dictionary at the beginning of the book. Other than that, I can't wait to get the next book in this series.

    I am always looking for new authors and different stories. If you love CSI, BONES or crime shows and love medieval stories with lots of twists and turns, then this one is for you. I have already ordered the next books in the series.

    The Unquiet Bones by Mel R. Starr is the first book featuring Hugh de Singleton, a surgeon in medieval England. Hugh has recently graduated from Oxford as a surgeon and has hung up a shingle in the bustling college town. When Lord Gilbert is wounded by a rearing horse, Hugh is on the scene and stitches up the lord in no time. Lord Gilbert shows his appreciation by bringing Hugh to his demesne, Bampton, as the town surgeon. Hugh is elevated to the post of bailiff when three sets of bones are discovered near the castle and he is ordered to discover first their identities and then their murderers. The book started off a little rough; Hugh's first person narration at first seemed choppy. But as the story progressed, I became completely immersed in the story, and Hugh reveals himself to be an earnest and sweetly noble young man. He is deeply burdened by the task set for him by Lord Gilbert, as well as by his growing affection for Lady Joan. The mystery is well-written and suspenseful, but the appeal of the book is Hugh. I found myself smiling and chuckling at his occasional bumbling. This is a character who has a great capacity for growth over the course of a series.
