Essentially, this is about the true story of the murder of James Cage, but it was so much more.
I would recommend this book.
It was fascinating to see how women were treated in the different times. You can't believe how unfair some women's lives were through no fault of their own and you find yourself feeling sympathy for a really unsympathetic character which is an amazing achievement for the author.
I especially enjoyed the information at the end of the book and the story of how it came to be written - a twist I have never come across before.
The characters are beautifully crafted and the subject is excellently researched. As far as the plot is concerned - it's an absolute winner.
It's almost hard to believe how much society changed between the two murders - and also how much it has changed since (especially for women). Fascinating stuff!
a real murder trial. Mary Cage (a distant relative of the author) was hanged for the murder of her
abusive husband by poison.
In 1911 Louisa, a budding Suffragist, found a diary written about Mary, her troubled life and her trial.
When the father of her new friend, Sophia, dies, Louisa suspects poisoning and compares the case
to that of Mary Cage and her family. She, Sophia and Sophia's cousin try to discover the poisoner.
In between there was information about the struggle by women to gain the vote - by peaceful and violent
I thought the plot was rather thin and the dialogue a bit stilted, even for the times the book was set in.
It was an o.k. read.
On the other hand the author shows the struggles women went through to be granted the right to vote
I'm starting to look to reading new genres so for me things are a bit of a gamble.
I was impressed very early on with the book. Well researched and thought out. I really enjoyed the style of writing within the historical context of the late nineteenth century.
Nice layering and interwoven plots and there was some wonderful character development.
Great imagery conjuring both the affluent and bottom of the barrel low income way of life around that time.
There's a lot going on in this book.
