Will Iris discover how her mother died? Or will her search for the truth cause a murderer to strike again?

1920 is a time of contrasts and change --a dangerous combination. For the first time in history, two women compete to become the third woman elected to Parliament, and Iris is a journalist sent to cover the story at the House of Commons. But it's a place that holds painful memories. In 1914, Iris's mother died there when she fell into the River Thames during a daring suffragette protest. In the shadow of Big Ben, a waterman tells Iris her mother didn't fall--she jumped. Iris searches for the suffragette with her mother on that fateful day, only to discover she disappeared after the protest and has been missing for six years. Desperate to know the reason behind that fatal jump, Iris's investigation leads her to Crookham Hall, an ancestral home where secrets and lies lead to murder . . .

The Suffragette's Daughter introduces a new sleuth for a new era.

"The story is full of mystery, intrigue and twists, and Iris is a great lead character you can really get behind."

"We are plunged into a twisting tale of secrets, families and politics and the characters are fabulously created."

"The pace of the story keeps you guessing who did what and why and there is plenty of artiso family drama. Fans of Downton Abbey will dive right into this one "

The Suffragette's Daughter is the perfect read for fans of authors like Kate Morton, Eve Chase, and Jacqueline Winspear.
