A chance find in one of Hay-on-Wye's many bookshops, this turned out to be one of my favourite books of the year so far. Part historical novel, part mystery with a romantic hue, this slight novel just demanded to be read in one sitting. A rare book, combining history and travel, together with astute observations on the emerging desire of and support for women to be able to share in the freedoms and the intellectual and educational opportunities available in the closing years of the 19th century. Oh to have been Eleanor Tew!
