After Mary

 
9780006551553: After Mary

A love story set in turbulent seventeenth-century England

This is the story of Isabel Stanhope, the daughter of a seventeenth-century English Catholic family, who becomes involved with the dangerous political and religious factions of the day. An English heroine.

Katharine McMahon writes about the real lives of women from the past.

Strong narrative, vividly-drawn characters and a historical setting. Entertaining and romantic. A more intelligent novel than Moggach’s Tulip Fever but just as entertaining.

Based in part on the true story of Mary Ward, one of the seventeenth century’s most adventurous, infuriating and inspirational women. A lost feminist icon, a pioneer educationalist and an energetic advocate of the rights of women in a world where even well-bred women were expected to remain silent and subservient.

Review:

‘Katharine McMahon writes in a mellifluous, often poetic style and headily evokes the Jacobean age – to such a degree that I felt absorbed into Isabel’s world and the places where she lived.’
Alison Weir, author of The Six Wives of Henry VIII

‘This is a story of passion, power – and dashed hopes. A tale to conjure with, down to its last final twist.’
Lavinia Byrne, author and broadcaster
