Review of Veil of Doubt
Another amazing and well researched novel by this author. The story she brings to life is based on true events. After her young daughter dies Emily Lloyd is charged with poisoning her and then further charged with the surprising earlier deaths of the rest of her family. Complicating matters is the issue of the state of Emily’s mental health and what was known about mental health in the time period after the Civil War. It was interesting to be transported back in time and to see how life was then and the limited amount of knowledge they had about so many things that we take for granted now. How would Emily’s case be tried today? As I said earlier an incredible amount of research went into writing this intriguing book. Pick this up if you are a historical fiction fan.
