Default Grace Marks case from 1840s is adapted for Netfliix

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...h pmg00000009

Technically, it is the adaptation of the novel by Margaret Atwood, about a servant girl in Canada named Grace Marks, who in 1843 was accused and convicted of murdering her employer, and suspected of murdering his housekeeper.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Marks

I'd never heard of the case before. Thought some might be interested in it for the insight to Victorian attitudes to serving women.
