The Slaidburn Angel

M. Sheelagh Whittaker


Two sisters behavior a modern day research right into a Victorian-era homicide of a baby and detect their grandmother was once a key witness.

While getting to know her ancestry on the net one gloomy night, Penny is astonished by way of what she unearths. Urgently, she instructs her sister Sheelagh, "Search ’Slaidburn Suspected baby Murder!’ Now!" So starts off a outstanding tale inside of a narrative spanning greater than a century.

In 1885 Yorkshire, sisters Grace and Isabella, accused of murdering Grace’s mystery illegitimate boy or girl, have been on trial for his or her lives. A unfortunately ignored two-year-old boy was once useless following a failed try to hotel him at a workhouse. A annoying and sensational trial in Victorian-era Leeds.

Sheelagh and Penny started keenly re-investigating those occasions. They consider in my view concerned simply because a prosecution witness on the homicide trial, nine-year-old Margaret Isherwood, could later turn into their grandmother. The ebook grips us with dramatic occasions, but in addition touches us with the abiding loyalty of sisterhood, the determined strength of our desire for romance, and the loopy issues that it could actually make us do.
