Beschreibung von Audible

This is an extremely well read audiobook based on a true story about a maid imprisoned in the 1900s for the murder of her employers. The book is read by Elizabeth McGovern who brings the tale to life in a compelling selection of accents and voices. The story is focused on the study of Grace Mark's psyche by Dr. Simon Jordan during her imprisonment at Kingston Penitentiary. As he unravels the grisly tale, his understanding of Grace's character grows as does his compassion. This is a really wonderfully written and beautifully told story, with a lovely touch of the Canadian spirit. (Abby C.)

Inhaltsangabe

In the astonishing new work by the author of the best sellers The Robber Bride and The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood takes listeners back in time and into the life and mind of one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of the 19th century. Grace Marks had been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer, the wealthy Thomas Kinnear, and of his housekeeper and mistress, Nancy Montgomery. Some believe Grace is innocent others think her evil or insane. After a stint in Toronto's Lunatic Asylum and now serving a life term, Grace herself claims to have no memory of the murders.

Dr. Simon Jordan, an up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness, is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists seeking a pardon for Grace. He listens to Grace's story, from her family's difficult passage from Ireland to Canada, to her time as a maid in Thomas Kinnear's household. And as he brings Grace closer to the day she cannot remember, he hears of the turbulent relationship between Kinnear and Nancy, and of the alarming behavior of Grace's fellow-servant, James McDermott. Jordan is drawn to Grace, but he is also baffled by her. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories? Is Grace a female fiend, a bloodthirsty femme fatale, or is she a victim of circumstances?
