Online interview: Superfluous Women

by Carola

It's about my next Daisy Dalrymple mystery, Superfluous Women, which deals with a rarely considered consequence of the First World War: Hundreds of thousands of men killed meant hundreds of thousands of women with no hope of the life they'd been brought up to expect, marriage and a family.

And here is a link to a poignant poem by one of the women  who found herself in this position, Vera Brittain

Sounds like a fascinating story, Carola. I look forward to reading it.

The research was very interesting. Singled Out is well worth reading, if only for the varying strengths of the women interviewed.
