It was a time when women were starting to rebel against Victorian conventions and to strive for their independence. This is the story of Hannah Russell?s emotional and artistic journey from the back streets of the East End of London to the souks of Egypt; from the canals of Venice to the lonely corridors of Russell Hall in Kent. Hannah thinks she has found love with Mary De Morgan, a writer of fairy tales and one of William Morris?s circle of friends. But where there is devotion there can also be deceit and where there is hope there also dwells despair.
