Geoffrey Trease's first novel was published in 1934 and, 61 years later, he's still writing first-quality novels for young people. The suffragette movement is the subject of this latest book and, as ever, it's through his adept character creation that Trease ignites the spark of interest in his story. Belle, Flora and Guy, all from very different backgrounds, are drawn into the same cause with consequences that are both moving and exciting. This is not merely an historical treatise, but a comméntary on the lives of women in contemporary society. It would serve both as class reader and library copy for able readers in Year 9.
