Overview

When she is caught up in a suffragette march in the summer of 1909, Eveline Fenton's life changes forever. During the march she meets Constance Mornington, and though the two girls are from very different backgrounds—Eveline is a grocer's daughter while Connie is the daughter of a wealthy doctor—the pair soon become life-long friends. The girls are both forced to keep their political beliefs from their families: Eveline's father doesn't approve of the movement and believes a woman's place is in the home, while Connie's parents are more concerned with respectability. When Connie falls for a lowly bank clerk she is forced to make a choice between her family and the man she loves. Meanwhile Eveline finds herself attracted to a gentleman she meets at the suffragette meetings, but must determine whether Laurence Jones-Fairbrook is merely dallying with her affections.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
British author Lord (The Flower Girl) places lackluster, interchangeable characters against a backdrop of political change and WWI in this disappointing saga. Constance “Connie” Mornington, a wealthy doctor's daughter, and Eveline Fenton, an office worker from the East End of London, go against their families' wishes and join the women's suffrage movement, and their incongruous friendship blooms. The plot plods along as Connie's family disowns her for loving bank clerk George Towers, and Eveline's wealthy lover predictably gets her pregnant and abandons her. Eveline's grandmother, who is “exceptionally modern for one of seventy,” and Albert Adams, the man who agrees to marry Eveline despite her pregnancy, are pleasant distractions, but the central friendship is never truly convincing, and the frequent bickering is obnoxious. Despite the rich setting, this novel merely simmers when it should boil. (Nov.)
