In the eye of the rope
An exotic drama in which one man’s mysterious disappearance brings a dark end to three other people. What would it take to destroy an Irish girl who had survived famine and war in Ireland, and a hazardous journey across the Atlantic Ocean, to become a servant-wife on an island where God’s truth and the Devil’s tale are entwined as tight as the strands of a rope?
This novel is based on the true story of the last woman hanged in Britain’s oldest colony, the only woman in the colony to have a gruesome sentence – the ultimate desecration – carried out on her body.
A novel in which truth lies suspended between fact and fiction.
A haunting mystery.
