Kathleen Jones uses her skill as a biographer and researcher to fill the pages of this novel with vibrant historical detail and a thoroughly engaging story. It kept me reading long after I should have turned off the bedside light! The novel has a form of its own; an authentic voice for an account that not only convinces us of her characters' existence, but of the author's authority of the historical period, from the grand political arena to the personal details of women's lives. The conflicts that Jones elucidates are not only of nations at war, but of the social changes that are forced upon society. For women, a treacherous and challenging theatre.
