Overview

If someone were to ask you who was the youngest child executed in the United States, you're bound to get a few answers. Many people believe that the title belongs to George Stinney who was executed in 1944 at the age of fourteen by South Carolina.

The title actually belongs to Hannah Ocuish, who was executed in 1786 for murder.

"The story of twelve-year-old Hannah Ocuish is a story that needs to be told. Had her story been preserved, it would have served as a cautionary tale for society so that no more children had to die under an unfair justice system..."

This story takes you back just weeks before the deed occurred, and the events that led up to this fatal outcome.

Hannah Ocuish was just twelve years old when she committed murder. This book will take you to a dark place in a child's mind that ultimately chose to commit such an unspeakable crime.

Meet the Author

I'm a single mom fighting many chronic illnesses. I've been in love with the written word ever since I wrote a teacher a poem in preschool.

I've published poetry, written three screenplays, and penned two television series.

A dark room, a computer, and green tea is all I need in this world. I hope you enjoy my written words.

    Highly recommended

    A very good read! If you like historical fiction, this book is for you. Easy to grasp and great for a Sunday read into a dark time in Colonial America.
