Radical Reformers and Respectable Rebels : How the Two Lives of Grace Oakeshott Defined an Era Paperback
In 1907, Grace Oakeshott faked her own death by drowning.

What prompted her to do so? Jocelyn Robson traces her life story through social, political and religious reform movements of the fin de siecle period.
