    The Massey Murder

    Grey provides a good context for this situation of essentially lowly servant vs. moneyed employer. She captures the context of Toronto, the types of law practiced then, the astute capacity to construct agency for a maid. The last chapters provides Grey at her best reconstructing a 'nobody' who survives and rebuilds her life. Well worth the read to understand Toronto of yesterday to current Toronto. Neither Toronto would recognize itself! How times change in one century!

    Innocence and virginity win out

    I thought the story worth reading as it gave a fair portrayal of what likely happened when a maid shot and killed her master Maybe he deserved consequences not sure death was appropriate

    The Massey Murder

    Awesome read. You feel like you are there watching it all happen. Class struggle over riding it all with excellent background development of the involved parties and the city of the day. Well worth the read.
