Product description

Review

"Sian Busby's deeply felt and well researched book is a tale of awful enchantment." Erica Wagner, The Times; "Fascinating, part autobiography, part moving family history, with sharply etched portraits richly embedded in their social and historical milieu." Caroline Moore, Sunday Telegraph; "A gripping tale of madness and infanticide during the time of the Great War... Powerful and disturbing." Margaret Forster"
