The Massey Murder: A Maid, Her Master and the Trial that Shocked a Nation by Charlotte Gray
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I want to give this book five stars for several reasons:
I am a history buff and love all history books.
I was raised in Toronto and know all the places mentioned in the book, my stomping grounds when a young person.
The story was even more important IMO because it brought out the idea that a woman could defend herself from sexual harassment even though the term had not been formed as yet.
The crime took place in Toronto by a maid, Carrie Davies during WWI. We are given excellent pictures of what it was like back then, how people lived and their expectations.
An excellent read.
