SAGAS. Leeds, 1914. Sisters Julia and Margaret Wood are struggling to rise above devastating poverty, while the threat of war looms large over their community. Angry feelings about foreigners have reached boiling point; their German-Jewish father's search for work proves hopeless, leaving entrepreneurial Julia to keep the family afloat by hawking homemade pies on the streets of Leeds. Her beautiful elder sister Margaret, an apprentice milliner and new member of the suffragette set, seeks a faster way out of the daily grind, pinning her hopes on a rich suffragette's journalist son, Thomas. But as the war rages on, it is left to Julia to discover the true meaning of courage and family, as she learns to look forward to the start of the new day - and the promise of a better life ahead.… (mere)

I have viewed several references that this novel is a historic romance. I do not believe that tag gives credit to the absorbing story that is based on the narrative of life experiences shared with Frances by her mother, Julia, of the time period 1914-1919. It is a poignant story of daily life in northern England during WWI, including urban poverty, attitudes to foreign nationals (Julia's German-Jewish father), and women's struggle for independence through suffragette meetings to the right to choose their preference of work and to be paid appropriately for that work. In some moments it is difficult to understand why women's struggles still continue for respect and equality. But to understand all the undercurrents of today, it is important to read the history and the “can do” attitude that never fails women and especially when we give each other comfort, support, and encouragement.
