An empowering, feminist and moving novel that will change the way you see the world.
1968. Veronica Moon, a junior photographer for a local newspaper, is frustrated by her (male) colleagues' failure to take her seriously. And then she meets Leonie on the picket line of the Ford factory at Dagenham. So begins a tumultuous, passionate and intoxicating friendship. Leonie is ahead of her time and fighting for women's equality with everything she has. She offers Veronica an exciting, free life at the dawn of a great change.
Fifty years later, Leonie is gone, and Veronica leads a reclusive life. Her groundbreaking career was cut short by one of the most famous photographs of the 20th century.
Now, that controversial picture hangs as the centrepiece of a new feminist exhibition curated by Leonie's niece. Long-repressed memories of Veronica's extraordinary life begin to stir. It's time to break her silence and step back into the light.

An excellent listen
A lovely story and delve into the women’s rights movement in the 70s , 80, and 90s.
This was quite painful to listen to. It is the second time that a Stephanie Butland Book has made me cry and caused me to reflect on my own life. I was on the fringes of all these Woman’ Rights campaigns at the time and it is extraordinary that a younger writer can depict the anger and emotions so accurately. I had forgotten how it felt but am very glad that my own, also less than perfect, memories have been jogged.
