The Corset

This thrilling novel follows Dorethea Truelove when she goes to visit Ruther Butterman, who is awaiting trial for murder, as a part of her charitable work. Set in the Victorian era, when Dorethea is faced with Ruth’s dreadful tales of betrayal and destruction told with unnerving bitterness, her core beliefs become shaken. Rationality and the power of redemption are ideals which Dorethea led her whole life following, but new experiences may see her follow a different path in life.
