On 19th June 1953 Ethel Rosenberg became the first woman in the US to be executed for a crime other than murder.

She was thirty-seven years old and the mother of two young children. Yet even today, at a time when te Cold War seems all too resonant, Ethel’s conviction for conspiracy to commit espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union is still controversial. This is not simply an account of the ’trial of the century’, but also a timeless human story of a supportive wife, loving mother and courageous idealist who grew up during the Depression with aspirations to become an opera singer. Instead, she had her life barbarically cut short on the basis of tainted evidence for a crime she almost certainly did not commit.

Anne Sebba’s masterly biography includes the dramatic prison letters Ethel exchanged with her husband, lawyer and psychotherapist, and interviews with Ethel’s two sons. Her tragic story lays bare a nation deeply divided, and reveals what happens when a government motivated by fear tramples on the rights of its citizens.
