The Suffragette’s Daughter
Works of: Fiction
Bestselling author Patricia Cornwell said of The Suffragette’s Daughter, “This sounds delicious.”
Iris Woodmore, a local journalist in the small market town of Walden, Hampshire, uncovers hidden secrets about a fatal jump and a missing suffragette that lead to murder.
1920 is a time of contrasts and change – a dangerous combination. For the first time in history, two women compete to become the third female Member of Parliament. Iris is sent to cover the story at the House of Commons, but it’s a place that holds painful memories.
In 1914, her mother died there when she fell into the River Thames during a daring suffragette protest. But in the shadow of Big Ben, a waterman tells Iris her mother didn’t fall – she jumped.
Iris searches for the suffragette with her mother on that fateful day, only to discover she disappeared after the protest and has been missing for six years. Desperate to know the reason behind that fatal jump, her investigation leads to Crookham Hall, an ancestral home where secrets and lies lead to murder.
Will Iris discover how her mother died? Or will her search for the truth cause a murderer to strike again?
