This is a novel based on a period in the life of Dame Ethel Smyth, a famous English composer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She commanded the respect of many prominent figures of her time. The book shows the ambition, determination, and intensity of love and emotion, as well as the eccentricities, of this amazing woman, whose achievements in a world dominated by men are unequalled. Gordon Thomas’ aim in writing this novel is to give greater prominence to this now less well-known composer and to encourage the playing of her works.
