Westminster, London, 22 June 1836. Crowds are gathered at the Court of Common Pleas. On trial is Caroline Norton, a beautiful and clever young woman who had been manoeuvred into marrying a dull, violent and controlling man – the brother of 3rd Lord Grantley. Dr Diane Atkinson’s seminal work on Caroline Norton laid the groundwork for all those that followed. It is the definitive story of Caroline Norton – her remarkable life, her loves and her literature.
