Publisher's Summary

Sixteen years have passed since Grace was locked up, at the age of 16, for the cold-blooded murders of her employer and his housekeeper/lover. Her alleged accomplice in the crimes, James McDermot, paid the extreme sentence of the law and was hanged on November 21, 1843. But some thought Grace was innocent, and her sentence has been commuted to life imprisonment. After a spell in the Lunatic Asylum she now claims to have no memory of the murders, and so Dr Simon Jordan tries to wake the part of Grace's mind which lies dormant. But what will he find?

Excellent narration of the different characters, lovely Canadian accent and gripping story.

Have you listened to any of Shelley Thompson’s other performances? How does this one compare?


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Occasional laugh and heart breaking in places

Any additional comments?

Only problem I had was occasionally distinguishing between the opening quotes at each chapter and the start of the story in each case- just needed a slight pause.

But I absolutely loved this clever book and its telling.
