Beautifully written and evocative, Crooked Pieces brings the past magically to life...
 
London, 1905. Maggie's new position as a maid lifts her from East End poverty and brings her into the world of the suffragettes, in particular the Pankhurts - icons for a generation of women in search of equality and the right to vote. Before long her life takes another exciting turn when she begins 'walking out' with a young police office, Fred Thorpe.
 
As Maggie becomes drawn into an increasingly militant battle with the authorities, she is torn between her loyalty to the man she loves and her passionate belief in the cause for which she is fighting. Is Maggie prepared to sacrifice her one change of happiness for the sake of a future she many never see?
