Sally Heathcote : Suffragette Hardback
Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is a gripping inside story of the campaign for votes for women.
A tale of loyalty, love and courage, set against a vividly realised backdrop of Edwardian Britain, it follows the fortunes of a maid-of-all-work swept up in the feminist militancy of the era.
Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is another stunning collaboration from Costa Award winners, Mary and Bryan Talbot.
Teamed up with acclaimed illustrator Kate Charlesworth, Sally Heathcote's lavish pages bring history to life.

Review by missizicks
This was a quick read. It helped that I already know aspects of the history of women's suffrage. There are notes fleshing out the events in the novel, but the author recommends reading the book through first, to allow the story to flow, before referring to the notes. I found the story a little simplistic at times, but it covered the main ground fairly well. The author's sympathies lie with Emmeline Pethick and her husband Fred Lawrence, and she spares no censure for the path taken by Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst.
