|Plot Summary of Anna's Book|
|"Three seemingly unrelated story-threads, a famous diary, the transcript of a murder trial, and a contemporary narrative by the diarist's granddaughter, are brilliantly woven together to shed new light on a grisly early 1900s murder and the identity of a child who went missing at the time. "
