Publisher's Summary

Locked up at the age of 16 for the bloody murders of her employer and his housekeeper, Grace Marks was lucky not to have been hung. But the questions remain: innocent or guilty, instigator or innocent dupe? Sixteen years later, Dr Simon Jordan, an expert in amnesia, is given access to Grace, who now spends most of her days as a servant in the home of the prison Governor, befriended by the Governor's wife who believes in her innocence. And so the days and the weeks pass as Simon tries to prise open the memories Grace claims to have lost and reveals a life of love and betrayal, bitter poverty and brutal abuse, drawing the listener in to the rooms of Grace's mind.

    "I tried"

    I found this book very difficult. At the start I was confused as to where the book was actually set and confess that I had to start it at least three times and came very close to putting it aside as a mistake. I preservered and finished the book, however all I can say is that I am so pleased I only bought the short version. The book was disjointed and not very well done and some parts were just plain ridiculous. The hours of my life I will never have back again so be warned. I wasn't going to mention the speaker but as one of your editors at an interview at the end of Prisoner of Birth stated how important the speaker was I felt only fair to put the other side across. The speaker was woeful and certainly didn't help with an already difficult task. I couldn't figure out from her accent where the book was supposed to be set and some her accents very just awful. Maybe a good book spoilt by a bad speaker but I don't believe so but she certainly didn't help.
