The Kew Gardens Girls (Orion) is an emotional and sweeping historical novel by Posy Lovell, a pseudonym for British author and journalist Kerry Barrett.
It's 1916 and England is at war. Desperate to help in whatever way they can, Ivy and Louisa enlist as gardeners at Kew, taking on the jobs of the men who have gone to fight. Without women's rights, the pair begin to struggle - but can the support of the Suffragettes help their cause? And when a tragedy overseas affects the people closest to them, can the women of Kew pull together to support themselves and their country through the darkest of times?
Born in Edinburgh, Kerry moved to London as a child with her family. She has a passion for uncovering the role of women in the past.
