Another book based on a true story. I really like Atwood's style of writing, and this book grabbed me from the start. It is a really intriguing story, and I really enjoyed it.

Review by

Grace is an enigma; either a cold blooded murderer or an innocent witness to the crime for which she is serving a life sentence. Grace doesn't so much reveal her story to Dr Jordan so much as hide between the words, but her future in freedom or incarcerated depends on her tale.
