Laura Purcell’s The Corset hides around the UK

The Book Fairies had the pleasure of hiding this beautiful novel in public places up and down the UK!

To celebrate the launch of The Corset by Laura Purcell, some lucky book fairies hid copies for people to find! Were you a lucky finder today?

About The Corset:

Is prisoner Ruth Butterham mad or a murderer?

Victim or villain? Dorothea Truelove is young, wealthy and beautiful.

Ruth Butterham is young, poor and awaiting trial for murder. When Dorothea’s charitable work leads her to Oakgate Prison, she finds herself drawn to Ruth, a teenage seamstress – and self-confessed murderess – who nurses a dark and uncanny secret.

A secret that is leading her straight to the gallows.

As Ruth reveals her disturbing past to Dorothea, the fates of these two women entwine, and with every revelation, a new layer of doubt is cast… Can Ruth be trusted? Is she mad, or a murderer?

Not lucky today?
