A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a very determined young lady who would not get out of my head. Lady Virginia Penrose has, I am pleased to say, furnished me with 25,000 words to date! As I said at the time ‘I don’t do historical fiction’ – turns out I was wrong! I am loving it.

My WIP is set around 1910 – 1914 before the outbreak of WWI. It was such a fascinating period of time. Hard to believe sitting here today that I would not have been allowed to vote! I’m convinced I would have been a sufragette, I have such a big mouth it would have been impossible for me to have kept quiet about something so unjust!

I wanted to share with you some of the amazing images that I have come across in the course of my research. I hope you enjoy them.
