Description

Passionate, headstrong, and fiercely independent, twenty-one-year-old Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to live her life to the fullest. When her autocratic father attempts to curb her academic ambitions and social experiences, she escapes her stodgy, conventional world and sets out alone to make a fresh start in London. There, enrolled as a student of biology, she discovers a flourishing unknown world of intellectuals, suffragettes, socialists and free love. But the true cost of her new freedom becomes clear only when she falls for the brilliant, charismatic-and married-academic, Capes. A sensation when it was first published in 1909 due to its groundbreaking treatment of female sexuality, Ann Veronica is a fascinating and optimistic look at one woman's quest for personal liberation in a male-dominated society.
