I would like to make myself the heroine of this story and my character to be noble -- an innocent victim led astray. But alas, sir, I would be lying.
In prison, accused of murder, Tully Truegood begins to
write her life story. A story that takes her from a young girl in the
backstreets of eighteenth century London to her stepmother Queenie's
Fairy House -- a place where decadent excess is a must.
by Queenie to become a courtesan, and by Mr. Crease -- a magician who
sees that Tully holds similar special powers to his own -- Tully soon
becomes the talk of the town.
But as Tully goes on a journey of
sexual awakening, she falls in love with one of her clients and the
pleasure soon turns to pain. Especially when the estranged husband she
was forced to marry by her father suddenly seeks her out. Now Tully is
awaiting her trial for murder, for which she expects to hang … and her
only chance of survival is to get her story to the one person who might
be able to help her.
