Suzanna Hubbard

Sketchbooks of Suzanna Hubbard telling the story of Martha Brown of Dorset the last woman to be publicly hanged. Martha Brown had suffered an adulterous and violent husband but was hung for his murder and the spectacle of her death had attracted a crowd that had included a young Thomas Hardy and Blake Morrison.
Suzanna Hubbard's simple style suits perfectly the telling of historic tales, the pared down style matching the simpler, uncluttered lives of historic figures.
