The Confessions of Frannie Langton was published on 4 April, and I have a copy to give away! You can read my review of this outstanding debut here, and the details of the giveaway can be found below.
They say I must be put to death for what happened to Madame, and they want me to confess. But how can I confess what I don’t believe I’ve done?’
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.
But through her fevered confessions, one burning question haunts Frannie Langton: could she have murdered the only person she ever loved?
A beautiful and haunting tale about one woman’s fight to tell her story, The Confessions of Frannie Langton leads you through laudanum-laced dressing rooms and dark-as-night back alleys, into the enthralling heart of Georgian London.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this post before midnight (UK time) on 15 April, and I’ll select a winner at random. UK only, I’m afraid. I won’t be collecting any data from you for the giveaway – I’ll put the winner in touch with the publisher who will be sending out a copy of the book!
Good luck! ❤
