Publisher's Summary

Now a major Netflix series - Atwood's most captivating, disturbing and satisfying work since The Handmaid's Tale.

'Sometimes I whisper it over to myself: Murderess. Murderess. It rustles, like a taffeta skirt along the floor.' (Grace Marks)

Female fiend? Femme fatale? Or weak and unwilling victim? Around the true story of one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of the 1840s, Margaret Atwood has created an extraordinarily potent tale of sexuality, cruelty and mystery.

Sixteen years have passed since teenaged Grace was locked up for the cold-blooded murder of her employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his lover, Nancy Montgomery. Saved from the gallows where her alleged accomplice was hanged, Grace claims to have no memory of the events which changed her life forever.

Dr Simon Jordan is an expert in the field of amnesia. His objective is to unlock the dormant part of Grace's mind and discover the truth behind one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of all time. Was Grace an unwitting accessory or a cold-blooded killer?

Sarah Gadon is fantastic

Sarah Gadon's narration is perfect, I could listen to her all day. I loved the story, and enjoyed the narrative voice of all of the characters, especially Grace Marks. I'm looking forward to reading more Margaret Atwood.
