9780007512058: Daughter of the House

A stunning novel from the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of THE KASHMIR SHAWL

London 1919

The Great War is over and London lies on the brink of an uncertain future. With the misery and horror of war in the past, hope begins to emerge for the women who have waited at home, as for the first time, they have taken steps towards political, economic and personal independence. But the men who fought and survived the trenches believe the future is theirs by right, and any woman who has celebrated her freedom must now redouble her efforts to keep it.

Nancy Wix is just such a woman. Born into a down-at-heel family, Nancy has always known that the visions she has seen since she was a child will set her apart from her peers. A chance encounter with a gifted medium reveals a way in which she might take hold of her future and she grasps the opportunity with a desperate intensity – for this is the age of spiritualism, and Nancy’s gift will see her star rise in a time when decimated families are desperate to hold on to their dead sons.

As the roaring twenties dawn, Nancy strives to break free from the rigid bonds of society and find her own place. The only thing that could hold her back is her love for an unattainable man…

Product Description:

The sequel to the stunning novel, THE ILLUSIONISTS, from the bestselling author of THE KASHMIR SHAWL

Born in to a theatrical background, Nancy Wix is not a woman to be held back by family or class. At a young age she discovered clairvoyant abilities that would change her whole life – from a boating accident that leaves three strangers dead, to visions of the Great War to come, Nancy strives to change her fate.

When she meets an enigmatic and handsome young man, an opportunity arises to escape the life she seems destined to lead – but can she rely on a man who leads a double life, or must she look inside herself to break free?

Daughter of the House is a superb slice of early twentieth century life, from pre-war suffragette movement, through the shell-shocked suffering of post-war Britain, through the age of spiritualism, the roaring twenties and beyond.
