The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins: Bookmark in Spalding's Book of the Week


By Spalding Reporter


1826, and all of London is in a frenzy. Crowds gather at the gates of the Old Bailey to watch as Frannie Langton, maid to Mr and Mrs Benham, goes on trial for their murder.

The testimonies against her are damning - slave, whore, seductress. And they may be the truth. But they are not the whole truth.

For the first time Frannie must tell her story. It begins with a girl learning to read on a plantation in Jamaica, and it ends in a grand house in London, where a beautiful woman waits to be freed - could she have murdered the only person she ever loved?

The Confessions of Frannie Langton is Bookmark in Spalding's Book of the Week. (14841072)

This is a beautiful and haunting tale about one woman's fight to tell her story, leading you through laudanum-laced dressing rooms and dark-as-night back alleys, into the enthralling heart of Georgian London.
