Author Carmel McMurdo Audsleyabout this book: Young female undertaker Kate Grainger is desperate to become a doctor. However, in Edinburgh Scotland in 1859, despite having the prestigious University of Edinburgh School of Medicine on her doorstep, Kate is unable to study as women are not permitted to enter the school's hallowed halls. She is not interested in marriage and so-called respectability and doesn't accept the belief that women are the weaker sex. In her work she deals with dead bodies and grieving families. She is compassionate and goes beyond what is required of an undertaker to help her clients transition to the other side, and to find out if they died in suspicious circumstances. She feels that she could be of help to the living too. She has a spirit friend who leads her to someone who may be able to help her in her quest to become a doctor. She meets this mysterious man and thinks she knows his secret - but does she?

The Undertaker:Masquerade is the sequel to The Undertaker. Readers asked for more adventures with Kate the undertaker.

 A great read

I hadn't read 'The Undertaker' and wondered if I needed to before reading the sequel 'The Undertaker:Masquerade'. I needn't have worried as even though it is a sequel it is written as a stand alone book and was very easy to follow. Kate the undertaker befriends a man who she thinks can help her get into medical school. Women aren't allowed to study in Edinburgh in 1859 and that's not good enough for Kate. The characters are believable and I'm now going to read the first book. It's a quick read, perfect for a plane flight or reading a couple of chapters each night. [by Delia Andrews]
