Summary

Compared to living with her impoverished family, working as a maid is a huge improvement for Maggie. Her new life allows her to enter a completely different world, the world of the suffragettes –women in search of justice, equality and the right to vote. Then another new face enters her life. Maggie falls for young Fred Thorpe, but any joy she feels at their relationship is tempered by the knowledge that he is a police officer. Drawn into an increasingly militant battle with the authorities and Government, Maggie is torn between her loyalty to the man she loves and her passionate belief in the cause for which she is fighting.
