Miss Gathercole's Girls
Born at the turn of the 20th century, Cassie Marlow grows up with great ambitions for success in life. But her place at Cambridge University has to be forfeited when both her parents die in the influenza epidemic just after the First World War. Instead, she finds herself learning shorthand and typing at the Gathercole Commercial Academy in Liverpool.
Set against a background of poverty, social life and political events in Liverpool during the 20s and 30s, Cassie's life unfolds as success and love elude her, until she finds that perhaps they were always there where she least expected.
