In 1650 Anne Green, a young servant girl, gave birth prematurely to an illegitimate child. Sadly the baby died and poor Anne was falsely accused of infanticide. In front of a large crowd she was hanged and then carried to the College of Physicians to be dissected for medical science. But as Anne's corpse lay on the table and the doctors assembled, a strange rattle was heard in her throat. Could she still be alive?

MEDIA REVIEWS
This true story is told with a blend of factual period detail and imaginative narrative . . . a haunting and original treatment of an historical tale * Daily Mail *
I really loved it . . . The beginning is excellent - it grabs you immediately and Anne's strong narrating voice compels all the way through. It's one of those books that really stays with you after you've closed it
It's rare to find a story that grabs you so immediately by the throat and still manages to keep you captivated until the very last page, but Mary Hooper manages this masterfully in this hypnotising tale * The Bookseller *
In her intriguing and captivating new book, Mary Hooper brings to vibrant life the fascinating true story of a girl who cheated the hangman's noose and lived to tell the tale
Newes from the Dead is totally gripping . . . it is un-put-downable
