A blend of literary reconstruction from contemporary documents including Charlotte's last letter from prison and the author's own insight into the mind and character of this remarkable young woman (1793, Charlotte Corday). This is a unique account of Jean Paul Marats assassination from Charlotte Cordays side. In this novel, we get an insight into Charlottes early life and what precipitated her decision to kill Marat. Her decision was stimulated not only by her repugnance for the September Massacres, for which she held Marat responsible, but for her fear of an all out civil war. She recognized that Marat was the gathering point for everything that was threatening the great virtues of the French Republic, and believed that his death would be the death of violence throughout the nation.
