Read full description of the books Night's Child:Toronto, January 1896. Schoolteacher Amy Slade is concerned when Agnes Fisher, a quiet and withdrawn pupil, faints during her lesson. Although she suspects that Agnes is mistreated at home, Miss Slade is unprepared for what she finds inside the girl’s desk: four shocking photographs, one of which depicts the thirteen-year-old in an obscene pose. When Agnes fails to attend school the next day, her distressed teacher takes the images to police. Surely these photographs are not related to the anonymous letters being sent to the station, accusing Sergeant Seymour of wicked and illicit activities? The thought is too disturbing for Detective William Murdoch, who vows to find the missing girl and the photographer responsible for the despicable crime.
Read information about the authorMaureen Jennings, now a Canadian Citizen, was born on Eastfield Road in Birmingham, England and spent her formative years there until she emigrated to Canada at the age of seventeen with her mother.
This has meant that she still feels a deep connection with her homeland. It has also no doubt been a strong influence in her love for, and her writing about, the Victorian period. She attended the University of Windsor where she attained a BA in philosophy and psychology.
A couple of years trying to decide what she really wanted to do with her life resulted in her returning to university, the University of Toronto, this time where she earned an MA in English literature.For the next eight years, she taught English at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute at a time when the English department seemed to be chock full of writers. Eric Wright, went on to write the highly successful Charlie Salter mystery series, Graeme Gibson, Peter Such, and others were writing both novels and poetry. An exciting time in so many ways but after eight years, another change of direction and in 1972, Maureen left Ryerson to become a psychotherapist, which was a long time interest. She has continued in private practice since then, although nowadays she mostly conducts creative expression groups and writes. Always passionate about dogs, she is happy to own a border collie named Jeremy-Brett and a mixed breed named Varley.
