Newes From the Dead by Mary Hooper - ESSENTIAL

Hooper, Mary Newes from the Dead, Pages: 263; Publisher: Roaring Book Press (Macmillan)

Language: PG 13; Sexual Content: PG 13 (Anne's "master" used her six different times for his own pleasure- not described just mentioned and where it happened); Violence: PG 13;


Based on the true story of Anne Green, an innocent girl hanged for a crime she did not commit in 1650, thought dead she woke up on the dissecting table. The surgeons who were supposed to be dissecting her helped resurrect her and she soon lived and was finally able to tell her story and get justice for the man who told all the lies.

This book was amazing. One of the greatest books I have read in a long time. In the back of this book it has the actual article about Anne Green. Great book for everyone who loves old century stories.
