In 1895, Maria Barbella, a young Italian immigrant in New York, was convicted of killing her lover, famously becoming the first woman sentenced to die by the electric chair. Enter Cora Slocomb, an American aristocrat, who would galvanize unprecedented support from across the social classes to save the life of Maria and avenge her "crime of honor." Drawing on a wealth of research and infused with urgent drama, this remarkable true tale is simply riveting! (AG)
