WRONGED. HANGED. ALIVE? (AND TRUE!) Anne can’t move a muscle, can’t open her eyes, can’t scream. She lies immobile in the darkness, unsure if she’s dead, terrified she’s buried alive, haunted by her final memory—of being hanged. A maidservant falsely accused of infanticide in 1650 England and sent to the scaffold, Anne Green is left with her racing thoughts, and her burning need to revisit the events—and the man—that led her to the gallows. Meanwhile, a shy 18-year-old medical student attends his first dissection, and notices something strange as the doctors prepare their tools . . . did her eyelids just flutter? Could this corpse be alive?
