"The ladies have raised their whips, where will they descend"
A compilation of women who abused their power (position in society, trustworthy nature, money) and talent (baking delicious cakes, making poisons, charming behaviour).

This side of the history would have been forever concealed from me had it not for the amazing readers on Goodreads and my own curiosity to keep looking for such amazing, peculiar things.
Reading about murderesses is the new sexy.
