Review

"This true story is told with a blend of factual period detail and imaginative narrative . . . a haunting and original treatment of an historical tale" (Daily Mail)

"I really loved it . . . The beginning is excellent - it grabs you immediately and Anne's strong narrating voice compels all the way through. It's one of those books that really stays with you after you've closed it"

"It's rare to find a story that grabs you so immediately by the throat and still manages to keep you captivated until the very last page, but Mary Hooper manages this masterfully in this hypnotising tale" (The Bookseller)

"In her intriguing and captivating new book, Mary Hooper brings to vibrant life the fascinating true story of a girl who cheated the hangman's noose and lived to tell the tale"

"Newes from the Dead is totally gripping . . . it is un-put-downable" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

It is 1650 and a baby lies raw and cold, dead before it even drew breath. A young servant girl, terrified and alone, is accused of its murder and sent to the gallows. Protesting her innocence in the chill air of a December morning, Anne Green is hanged. Moments later her lifeless body is lifted down from the scaffold and carried to the College of Physicians for brutal dissection.

But as Anne's corpse lies on the table and the doctors assemble, a strange rattle is heard in her throat. Against all the odds, could she still be alive?

About the Author

Mary has been writing professionally for over twenty years and has published nearly eighty books for children and young people. She has written funny books, 'issue' books and spooky books, and has now settled into doing what she loves best: writing historical novels centering around real situations (The Great Plague in 1665, for example) and real people (Anne Green, who was hanged for infanticide in Oxford, 1650). --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
