Publisher's Summary

The day after her wedding, Donella Ferguson Watson wakes up shackled to a man haunted by the past. The lonely days become weeks, months. Her husband, Hugh, a prison doctor, will offer no explanation for their sexless marriage. She comes to suspect the answer lies with a hunger-striking suffragette who was force fed and held in solitary confinement. But what really happened between Hugh and his prisoner patient?


What the Critics Say

"A fascinating insight into one of the most compelling stories in the history of the women's suffrage movement." (The Times)
"Holds a deserved place in the Pantheon of Scotland's exciting contemporary novelists." (Val McDermid)
