Anna Jacobs brilliantly recreates life in 1919 in this gripping story of women struggling to find love and freedom in a world of hardship, death, and poverty.
Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia a while ago, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She has two grown-up daughters and lives with her husband in a spacious waterfront home. Often, as she writes, dolphins frolic outside the window of her office. Inside, the house is crammed with thousands of books.
