Description

Discover the stunning graphic novel from the Costa Award-winning authors of Dotter of her Father's Eyes.

Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is a gripping inside story of the campaign for votes for women. A tale of loyalty, love and courage, set against a vividly realised backdrop of Edwardian Britain, it follows the fortunes of a maid-of-all-work swept up in the feminist militancy of the era. Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is another stunning collaboration from Costa Award winners, Mary and Bryan Talbot. Teamed up with acclaimed illustrator Kate Charlesworth, Sally Heathcote's lavish pages bring history to life.

Thrilling... The great achievement of the book is that it manages to be both an adventure story - Sally is a wonderful heroine, brave and determined - and a superbly concise work of social history. -- Rachel Cooke * Observer * [An] excellent and fascinating book. -- David Robinson * Scotland on Sunday * A potent mix of hope and brutality... Very readable. -- James Smart * Guardian * A tale of loyalty, love and courage that brings history to life with snappy dialogue and brilliant images. * Tatler * An engaging, resonant human story given an utterly gripping graphic realisation. * The Crack *
