On 7th November 1843, 23 year-old Harriet Monckton is found murdered in the privy behind the dissenting chapel in Bromley, Kent. The townsfolk are appalled by her death, and even more so when the autopsy reveals that Harriet was almost six months pregnant. Drawing on the original coroner's reports and witness testimonies, Elizabeth Haynes builds a compelling picture of Harriet Monckton's final days through the eyes of those closest to her: her fellow teacher and companion, her would-be fiancé, her seducer, and her former landlord and lover. All are suspects. Based on an unsolved true crime.
