Publisher's Summary

The day after her wedding, Donella Ferguson Watson wakes up shackled to a man haunted by the past. The lonely days become weeks, months. Her husband, Hugh, a prison doctor, will offer no explanation for their sexless marriage. She comes to suspect the answer lies with a hunger-striking suffragette who was force fed and held in solitary confinement. But what really happened between Hugh and his prisoner patient?

    "started well but fizzled out"

    I rely enjoyed the content relating to the suffragette movement but attention wavered as the book became more smoothy.
    enjoyed as audible though. excellent quality and performance
