Publisher's Summary

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.

Rightly proud

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.
