Anna's Book Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis 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.
