The Killing of Louisa by Janet Lee – Librarians’ Choice Favourite

To lose one husband maybe regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like murder.

In New South Wales in 1888, Louisa Collins was sentenced to hang after being tried multiple times for the alleged murders of her two husbands. The testimony of her young daughter helped to decide her fate.

This clever andcompelling novel recreates Louisa’s time in her Darlinghurst prison cell as shereflects on her life and on the grief and loss that delivered her to thisplace. Despite difficult marriages, financial hardship and the deaths ofseveral children, she remains resilient and determined to have her ownidentity.

But as she faces her final days,will Louisa confess to her crimes? Or is an innocent woman about to be hanged?
