Creed, by Margiad Evans
Set in Chepsford, a fictional industrial Border town characterised by drunkenness and brawls, it takes suffering as its subject matter. Domestic life is unsettled by strong opinions on love and sin, while notions of religion and fate are debated with passionate intensity.
The Soldier and The Gentlewoman, by Hilda Vaughan
It is the end of the First World War and the men are returning home. Gwenllian cannot share in the joy at their return, however – for her, peacetime means the end of independence and the loss of her beloved ancestral home.
Jill, by Amy Dillwyn
Jill is an unconventional heroine, a lady who disguises herself as a maid and runs away to London. Life above and below stairs is portrayed with irreverent wit in this fast-paced story. But at the centre of the novel is Jill’s unfolding love for the woman she works for.
