I'm approaching the end of the book. Julian has been hired and I know what's coming. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is one of the best I've read in a while. I feel so very sad for everyone but especially Mamah as she was such a remarkable woman for any time but especially her time. I wish so much that I had known her.


Yes, very upset by this book ending of a woman nobly portrayed as well as children and loyal workers so senselessly and horribly murdered. Seems that Carlton was definitely mentally unstable. Racism fueled his insanity. So sad. RIP.

The murders felt like such a harsh end to the great feel of advances for feminine movement.Also, understanding Frank became so much more personal.I wasnt sure I could love him,but now I keep a more open eye to his moral impropriety.


What I find sad is that in these cases and based on the morals of the time Mamah would not have been given her children by her husband. In this case Victorian narrow minded practices would have saved their lives.

That said, there seems to be a supernatural element to this crime. Carlton almost seems to have been possessed at the end.

Just a basic hate crime.
