Description:
It is 1928. Matilda Simpkin, rooting through a cupboard, comes across a small wooden club - an old possession of hers, unseen for more than a decade. Mattie is a woman with a thrilling past and a chafingly uneventful present. During the Women's Suffrage Campaign she was a militant. Jailed five times, she marched, sang, gave speeches, smashed windows and heckled Winston Churchill, and nothing - nothing - since then has had the same depth, the same excitement. Now in middle age, she is still looking for a fresh mould into which to pour her energies. Giving the wooden club a thoughtful twirl, she is struck by an idea - but what starts as a brilliantly idealistic plan is derailed by a connection with Mattie's militant past, one which begins to threaten every principle that she stands for.

Reviews
1928, women finally have the vote, Mattie a suffragette needs a new purpose. She decides to try to educate and encourage more young women into the feminist movement. Written very much in a "jolly hockey sticks" style of the times, the exploits of the girls on the Heath were straight out of The Bunty. For me the plot was thin and didn't live up to expectations.
