內容簡介

「他們說,我必須為發生在夫人身上的事而受死,他們要我坦白。但是,我如何對我不相信會做的事來認罪呢?」

 

1826年,整個倫敦陷入了瘋狂。群眾聚集在中央刑事法院的所在地:老貝利街,看著Benham先生與夫人的女僕Frannie Langton犯下的謀殺罪而接受審判。所有的證詞都對她極為不利:她是個奴隸,也是娼妓與引誘者。或許這些證詞是真的,但卻不是完全的真。

 

Frannie第一次必須要說出她的故事。剛開始,她是個在牙買加農場學習閱讀的小女孩,最後卻成了住在倫敦豪宅,等待被解放的美麗女子。

 

就在她激動的告白中,一個刺痛的問題不斷縈繞在Frannie的腦海裡,她真的殺了她唯一愛的人?

 

Frannie Langton的告白》是一部美麗又縈繞不去的哥德體小說,訴說了一個女子勇敢說出自己過往的故事,它帶領讀者穿越充滿鴉片酊的更衣間以及如黑夜般的倫敦後巷,體驗喬治王時代的倫敦樣貌。

 

本書被喻為承襲了夏綠蒂.伯朗特到莎拉.華特斯,以及愛特伍德《雙面格蕾絲》和珍.瑞絲《夢迴藻海》的文學傳統。

'They say I must be put to death for what happened to Madame, and they want me to confess. But how can I confess what I don't believe I've done?'

1826, and all of London is in a frenzy. Crowds gather at the gates of the Old Bailey to watch as Frannie Langton, maid to Mr and Mrs Benham, goes on trial for their murder. The testimonies against her are damning - slave, whore, seductress. And they may be the truth. But they are not the whole truth.

For the first time Frannie must tell her story. It begins with a girl learning to read on a plantation in Jamaica, and it ends in a grand house in London, where a beautiful woman waits to be freed.

But through her fevered confessions, one burning question haunts Frannie Langton: could she have murdered the only person she ever loved?

A beautiful and haunting tale about one woman's fight to tell her story, The Confessions of Frannie Langton leads you through laudanum-laced dressing rooms and dark-as-night back alleys, into the enthralling heart of Georgian London.
