A brutal murder of a child in a small English village in 1860 which remained an unsolved crime until the sensational confession of Constance Emilie Kent in 1865. If you are a true crime enthusiast, if you wonder about what happens to a woman, a human being, after they confess, are tried and then imprisoned for twenty years you will enjoy Noeline Kyle's tracing of Constance Kent's extraordinary life before, during and after this awful crime. Constance Kent trained as a nurse at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, worked at the Coast Hospital at Little Bay, was matron of the notorious Parramatta Industrial School for girls and matron of a nurses' home in Maitland, she was a convicted murderess but lived to the grand old age of 100 under an assumed name and not once did anyone in the Antipodes suspect her true identity.
