The story begins in spectacular, if shocking fashion, aboard the Titanic as it's sinking. An important scene, which Ruby later realises was the genesis of her becoming a Suffragette, takes place in a lifeboat. Ruby and Nashey are left traumatised and horrified not just by the disaster itself, but by the failures of the ship's officers. Ruby is also profoundly affected by the misplaced trust in, and subservience to, these men. Readers are then taken to New York, and on to Halifax, Nova Scotia, before the novel unfolds in Suffragette London, 1912-1914. Much of the story takes place within the militant struggle for Votes for Women, into which both main characters become drawn through different avenues. Ruby gets involved in Mrs Pankhurst's WSPU, which sees her imprisoned, hunger-striking and being force-fed. Nashey is initially interested in social change rather than the vote but a different Pankhurst working down in the East End impresses upon him that the former will follow the latter. Through the five p's publicity stunts, protests, political speeches, prison torture and police tactics we see the lengths to which the women and government went to ensure they would prevail. A main character then questions the direction the movement is taking. But out of this apparent Suffragette autumn comes a women s spring... Suffragette Autumn Women's Spring is, predictably, a fast-paced page turner, but characterisation and interpersonal relationships are important themes, brought in through cracking dialogue. This gripping work of historical fiction will appeal primarily to women and has been inspired by a number of sources, including Sylvia Pankhurst and her books on the Suffragette movement, Hilary Mantel and Arthur Morrison.

Matador Books 1st. Edition.About the Author:
Ian Porter is an ex-ski journalist who gave up the day job to devote time to his passions - novel writing and historical research. His first book, Whitechapel, a social history novel set in 1888 has been well received. Ian's particular interest is 19th/20th century women's history, so naturally chose to set his 2nd novel in the world of Suffragettes.
