It is summer... a heat wave... tense, uneasy days in the city. There are ominous signs of political turbulance in the dying years of the twentieth century. Welfare benefits are under attack, but women are fighting back, using unorthodox weapons. Lynn Byers does not accept the government's demand for a return to 'womanly duties'. As desperate politicians use increasingly savage methods of control, she can no longer stand aside to watch. A classic of women's fiction.
