Impossible Saints

In turn-of-the-twentieth-century London, Lilia Brooke considers herself the very model of the modern New Woman—she smokes, detests the institution of marriage, and can barely cook—and she is willing to do anything in her power to secure women the vote. Paul Harris, Lilia's childhood friend, is an Anglican priest, traditional in every way and with ambitions to become the youngest dean of St. John's Cathedral. As the battle for women's suffrage becomes more and more fraught with violence, and it becomes harder for the sheltered Paul to turn a blind eye to the injustices in the city, the two struggle to reconcile their mutual attraction—and the incongruent natures of their lives—and must decide, once and for all, what's truly worth fighting for. This brilliant debut historical novel will keep you enthralled from beginning to end. (SM)
