Anne Green can't move a muscle, can't open her eyes, can't scream. She lies paralyzed in absolute darkness, terrified by her final memory - being hanged. Is she in purgatory? Hell? Was she buried alive? An innocent woman caught up in a nightmare, Anne Green is trapped with her racing thoughts, her burning need to revisit the events - and the man - that led her to the scaffold.

Meanwhile, a shy young medical student attends his first dissection and notices something strange as the doctors prepare their tools...Did her eyelids just flutter? Could this corpse be alive?

Haunting, thrilling, and impossible to put down, Newes from the Dead is based on the true story of the real Anne Green, a servant who survived a hanging in 1650 England only to awaken on the dissection table. Newes from the Dead concludes with an excerpt from an original 1651 document that recounts this chilling medical phenomenon. Download and start listening now!

    " While the story moves along slowly, it's fascinating and emotional! Based on a true story, I think Hooper did a great job building the characters around the event. "

    " Hanged for a crime she did not commit---died and then wasn't dead anymore----and the story is true! It was pretty interesting. "

    " Well done book about the true story of Anne Green who was hanged and "came back to life" (or perhaps never died). I liked the way the author fleshed out the story with period details to make it seem more real, and made sure at the end to note that they were fictional. "

    " This story definately kept me interested. The suspense that built up while waiting to find out if she would wake up or not added to the greatness of it. "
