Publisher's Summary

Edgar Award Winner, Best Paperback Original, 2018

It is 1837, and the city streets teem with life, atmosphere, and the stench of London. Sarah Gale, a seamstress and mother, has been sentenced to hang for her role in the murder of Hannah Brown on the eve of her wedding. Edmund Fleetwood, an idealistic lawyer, is appointed to investigate Sarah's petition for mercy and consider whether justice has been done. Struggling with his own demons, he is determined to seek out the truth, yet Sarah refuses to help him. Edmund knows she's hiding something but needs to discover just why she's maintaining her silence. For how can it be that someone with a child would go willingly to their own death? 

The Unseeing is a vividly written novel of human frailty, fear, and manipulation and of the terrible consequences of jealousy and misunderstanding.

Excruciating

If historical authenticity is your thing, you might enjoy this very carefully researched book. However, the story is so slow that I ended up skipping the entire middle of the book just to get to the end. The characters are well drawn and researched, but the plot drags its feet so slowly that it felt almost painful working my way to the final, extremely well- earned plot twist at the end.
