This week’s giveaway takes us back in time to Victorian England. We have three copies of Tania Blanchard’s latest book, A Woman of Courage, to give away. Tania Blanchard is an acclaimed author of historical novels The Girl from Munich, Suitcase of Dreams, Letters From Berlin, and Echoes of War.
We’re particularly delighted for Tania, who is a graduate of the Australian Writers' Centre and now a bestselling author. Listen to our interview with Tania on episode 278 of the podcast, and read more about her journey here. Her latest novel is a testament to the women who fought relentlessly for their right to vote, and promises to be a powerfully gripping tale of passion, love, loss and self-discovery.
Inspired by a true story, A Woman of Courage is more than just historical fiction – it's a timely reminder of how small acts of courage can change the world.
Here’s the blurb:
1890, Northern England. Hannah Todd dreams of a future where women have the right to vote.
Fresh from her teaching studies in Durham, she joins her parents in a rural village, brimming with newly found passion and the groundswell towards women's suffrage unfolding in London. Working tirelessly to help women and children in the county, Hannah is determined to make the fight for the vote her life's work, adding her voice to the rising chorus across the nation and hopes of a new world and a new way of thinking.
But soon she must fight a new, unexpected battle – that of the yearning of her own heart. As Hannah grapples with her conflicting feelings she discovers that when power is threatened, darkness, brutality and dangerous, closely guarded secrets are never too far from the surface. How far can she go to fight for what's right?
From the exciting, progressive hive of London to the traditional villages of the rural north, A Woman of Courage rings with the strength and struggles of women at time of momentous change … and the choices one woman must make to help forge a new future.
