James Maybrick died in Liverpool and his wife was charged, tried and found guilty of murdering him. She was sentenced to hang but the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. After serving over 15 yrs she went to live in a convent and then returned to her homeland the USA.

She wrote a book about her 15 lost years which is not available on Amazon at the moment though a book called The Poisoned Life of Mrs Maybrick is available on Kindle. I have just finished reading it.

You can read My 15 lost years free on the internet.

I am going to try and download it on to my laptop.

There was a diary found and it was claimed it was James Maybrick's diary. The diary was claimed to have been written by Jack the Ripper.

Thanks for site address--shall certainly have a look at the book. Hadn't known Maybrick wrote any such thing, though I did know that another woman convicted of murder became a novelist after her release . . .

I've just downloaded it to my Kindle from here

http://openlibrary.org/books/OL6949240M/Mrs._Maybrick's_own_story

A quick glance shows it to be a little disjointed in format but readable I would think.

PS My first post here so hello :)

I read the book about James Maybrick's diary several years ago, as I'm also very interested in Jack the Ripper. The author made a very good case for him being 'Jack', and it was a very interesting book. I can't remember what it was called, unfortunately.
