  • ""Intriguing and captivating."'Celia Rees, author of Witch Child WRONGED. HANGED. ALIVE' (AND TRUE!)Anne can't move a muscle, can't open her eyes, can't scream. She lies immobile in the darkness, unsure if she'd dead, terrified she's buried alive, haunted by her final memory'of being hanged. A maidservant falsely accused of infanticide in 1650 England and sent to the scaffold, Anne Green is trapped with her racing thoughts, her burning need to revisit the events'and the man'that led her to the gallows. Meanwhile, a shy 18-year-old medical student attends his first dissection and notices something strange as the doctors prepare their tools . . . Did her eyelids just flutter' Could this corpse be alive' Beautifully written, impossible to put down, and meticulously researched, Newes from the Dead is based on the true story of the real Anne Green, a servant who survived a hanging to awaken on the dissection table. Newes from the Dead concludes with scans of the original 1651 document that recounts this chilling medical phenomenon. Newes from the Dead is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year."@en

  • "Oxford, im Jahre 1650: Namhafte Mediziner und junge Studenten versammeln sich im Haus des Apothekers Clarke, um der Sezierung einer Leiche beizuwohnen. Die Tote ist die sechzehnjährige Anne Green, die wegen Kindstötung zum Tod am Strang verurteilt und gehängt worden ist. In Wahrheit wurde Anne Green vom Neffen ihres Dienstherren verführt und dann sitzengelassen - doch die Wahrheit hatte vor Gericht niemand hören wollen. Stunden nach Annes Tod ist der junge Student Robert der erste, der es wahrnimmt: Anne Greens Augenlider flattern. Sollte das Mädchen, das noch auf dem Schafott seine Unschuld beteuert hatte, den Strang überlebt haben?"
