Mary Hooper

Newes from the DeadSuitable for 13-14+

Set in Cromwellian England and based on a true story, this is a fascinating story of a young girl who is sentenced to infanticide after being cruelly seduced and giving birth to the illegitimate child of her wealthy employer's wayward grandson. Struggling for life after being taken down from the hanging scaffold, she lies conscious but immobile on the physician's table about to be dissected for medical discovery. Her tragic life cleverly unfolds through her thoughts and flashbacks, creating a compulsively readable story, all the more gripping for being based on reality.
