Summary

Gentlewoman (noun) A woman who meets the harsh pressures of modern life with thoughtfulness, care and kindness. She is confident, and without needing to shout, exudes a powerful presence.

Learn to navigate the harshness of life with soft power. In her debut book, Lotte Jeffs, weaves powerful life experience with practical advice and a psychological deep-dive into what truly constitutes an emotionally rich and meaningful existence. She speaks to everyone, from agony aunts and archaeologists to pop stars and novelists, to explore a diverse picture of what it is to truly live life well.

How to be a Gentlewoman will teach you how to slow down, lean out, recognise good relationships and let go of the bad, create a space you love, find your people, and construct a happy and 'joined up' sense of yourself.

The gentle antidote to a brutal world.
