Description

Consider Vivien in November 1922: she is twenty-four, and a spinster. She wears fashionable clothes, but she is plain and - almost worse in those times - intelligent. At nearly six foot tall, she is known unkindly by her family as ‘the giantess.' Fortunately, Vivien is rich, so she can travel to London and bribe a charismatic gentleman publisher to marry her. What he does not know is that Vivien is pregnant with another man’s child, and will die in childbirth in just a few months...

Professional reviews

"Inventive, warm, playful and full of Weldon's trademark ironic edge; this is a spellbinding historical novel from one of the best novelists of our time. “A romp of a read full of Weldon wit and wisdom, as well as sumptuous period detail.” DAILY MAIL “The quirky, singular writing style […] triumphs […] with its unique characters and playfully ironic voice.” THE IRISH SUN"
