Margaret has done it again, a brilliant read. From the first page to the last. Lots of history, which was very interesting. The charactors come to life on the page and you begin to love them. It brought me to tears. Now we have to wait for the next. Please read this book its really brilliant. I am sure you will enjoy.
Dickinson has thoroughly researched this era, writing a factual work of fiction. Accuracy and attention to detail is evident from the beginning of the book, with regard to the Cat and Mouse Act and what the Suffragettes endured in their fight for Votes for Women. I am particularly interested in the period of WW1, women's work on the Front as volunteers and the Suffrage Movement, and the book does not disappoint. As previous reviews, the characters in this book really do come to life and I found it difficult to put down. This is the first book I have read by Margaret Dickinson, first of many I hope!

Excellent read, opened my eyes to what those brave lasses and their supporters went through to bring woman the respect they earned. It gave me an insight as to what they actually did, not just chained themselves to railings, and why they did it.
