Regular price $150.00 Sale

Constance Emily Kent (1844 – 1944) confessed to the notorious murder of her baby half-brother Francis that took place when she was 16 years old. After serving 20 years in prison, Constance was released and left for Australia. At the time of this "true crime" publication, Kent had been absent from England for 43 years and was generally assumed to be dead. In fact, she lived to be 100, and became very successful in her new home.
