xiv+242pp+illus. On 2nd September, 1685, Lady Alice Lisle was the last woman to be beheaded in England. The 67-year-old widow was accused of sheltering a clergyman involved in Monmouth's Rebellion. Her trial was the first of the infamous Bloody Assize and was characterised by Judge Jeffrey's vengeful and bullying attitude. The story of a disturbing period of history, a time when fairness, justice and truth were cast aside, but the author concludes that Alice Lisle was not - as many have portrayed her - an innocent bystander, but an underground heroine.
