Summary

Curses cannot be silenced. 

Mary lives a contented life as wife to a wealthy merchant in Elizabethan London. But there's a part of her past she can't forget.... 

As a small girl she was cursed for causing the death of a vagrant child, a curse that predicts that she will hang. 

Sometimes the happiest households are not what they seem, and Mary's carefully curated world begins to falter. Mary's whole life is based on a lie. Is she the woman her husband believes her to be? 

One rainy day she ventures to London's Cheapside, where her past catches up with her.... Suddenly the lies and deception she has so fought to hide begin to claw to the surface. 

The Cursed Wife is an enthralling psychological thriller set in Elizabethan London, from Pamela Hartshorne, author of The Edge of Dark

Wickedly Wonderful!

Any additional comments?

"All About Eve" meets the backstreets and respectable parlors of Elizabethan London! Rachel Atkins brings this little masterpiece to life!

Pulls your heartstrings

What a great read. Definitely two thumbs up but don't look at the end of the book.
