Editorial Reviews

"A twisting tale of family secrets and unacknowledged desires. Intricately plotted and extremely convincing in its evocation of the everyday realities of 1830s London, this is a fine first novel." ( The Sunday Times)

Publisher's Summary

Set in London in 1837, Anna Mazzola's The Unseeing is the story of Sarah Gale, a seamstress and mother sentenced to hang for her role in the murder of Hannah Brown on the eve of her wedding. Perfect for any fan of Sarah Waters or Antonia Hodgson.

After Sarah petitions for mercy, Edmund Fleetwood is appointed to investigate and consider whether justice has been done. Idealistic but struggling with his own demons, Edmund is determined to seek out the truth. Yet Sarah refuses to help him, neither lying nor adding anything to the evidence gathered in court. Edmund knows she's hiding something but needs to discover just why she's maintaining her silence. For how can it be that someone would willingly go to their own death?

Boring!

I cannot agree with other reviewers. This story is very hard going and I almost gave up several times. It could have been written so much better.
The narrator is dreadful making silly voices all the way through.

interesting

I found this a bit hard going really. The concept was better than the actually story unfortunately.
