The Second-last Woman in England PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Second-last Woman in England free pdf In London's South Kensington, in the austere years immediately following the end of the war, Mrs Harriet Wallis is convicted of the murder of her husband, Cecil, and is sentenced to death by hanging. Leading a pampered if conventional existence, the Wallises appear to have a contented life. However, when the police turn up at their front door on the day the new nanny arrives, the first of a chain of events is begun that will culminate in Cecil's murder. Set in a post-War period when a well-to-do British family's existence - both outside and inside the house - is ruled by a strict set of conventions, The Second-last Woman in England explores the depth of emotions that are always there in every family but rarely surface. And what happens when they do.
