The Conviction Of Cora Burns Blog tour review.

Cora was born in a prison. But is this where she belongs?

Birmingham, 1885.

Born in a gaol and raised in a workhouse, Cora Burns has always struggled to control the violence inside her.

Haunted by memories of a terrible crime, she seeks a new life working as a servant in the house of scientist Thomas Jerwood.

Here, Cora befriends a young girl, Violet, who seems to be the subject of a living experiment. But is Jerwood also secretly studying Cora…?

An intriguing book this one which comes to life via it’s historical setting and atmospheric sense, the author has a great descriptive prose and the characters are well drawn.

Cora’ s search for her sister and the truth behind a horrible crime is compelling enough but what really made this work for me was the fascinating insight into how criminality was observed and dealt with- a snapshot of an era gone by, it is often horrifying but utterly intriguing.

The mystery is well plotted and the writing is cleverly immersive, definitely worth a read if you like historical fiction with authentic setting and character.
