Format: Paperback
This is not the type of book I would normally read but I am so pleased I made an exception. This is one of the best books I have ever read. It gives an insight to the lives of women before they had any rights or the vote and the different impact the Suffragette movement had on different classes. The description of the treatment women in this movement experienced will take your breath away. It also touches on the labour movement and the life of working class people at the time of the first world war. None of this sounds like a pleasurable read but the story is so vivid and the characters so well written that you get drawn into their lives. I couldn't put this book down, I am looking forward to reading some of MacLeod Trotters other books.

Format: Paperback
This novel begins at the turn of the last century, and follows Maggie Beaton on her fight for female emancipation. What immediately makes The Suffragette different from so many other novels about the movement is that it is not only set in the north of England, but also profiles a working-class protagonist.

The Suffragette is literally illustrated with such detail about the slums of Newcastle, and the degradation and filth that Maggie and her family live and work in, that it is easy to quickly become absorbed in the world Janet recreates here. And the further Maggie becomes involved in the cause for suffrage, the faster you start turning the pages to see where her story goes next. I found that after Maggie was locked up in prison, and after reading the harrowing descriptions of her force feeding, that the story really picked up pace for me and I became completely absorbed in her tale.

There are a lot of twists in the novel and I won't spoil them, but I'd urge you to read Janet's book and find out for yourself. There were quite a few areas where I really started racing through the pages to find out what happened as soon as I could, and also quite a few places where I seethed with rage on Maggie's behalf. The Suffragette is a very convincing and vital novel on this topic.

Really good book, I have only just started reading Janet MacLeod Trotter's books and I cannot wait to read the next one. I did not want to put it down, a gritty realistic look at life and the struggle of the suffragettes. If you enjoy Dilly Court, Ellie Dean and Dee Williams to name a few then you will enjoy this.

An easy to read, but difficult to put down, book.
As a Geordie myself I was able to relate to places mentioned. Quite a relevant read at moment as this year, 2013, is the 100th anniversary of Emily Davison's tragic accident. The treatment of suffragettes in prison was appalling and is well recounted here.
A good read for women and men of all ages especially with any interest in the suffragette movement

I had not read this author previously but after reading A Handful of Stars written by her I realize I would like to read more. I haven't read it yet so I can't say anything more about this at the moment.

I have just started this book and I was hooked from the first page.
It makes you get really into what the sufferagette movement was all about and
makes you realise what they did to help we women get the vote and rights.
Would recommend this read
