I am so happy I had the chance to read this novel. It bent a lot of my expectations and taught me that going into a book blind can be a great thing! More people need to know Frannie’s story, which is why I bring you this review today.

London, 1826. The city is a frenzy awaiting to hear the outcome of Frannie Langton’s trial. The Jamaican maid is being charged with two murders, that of Mr. and Mrs. Benham, her masters.
