When she is caught up in a suffragette march in the summer of 1909, Eveline Fenton''s life changes forever. During the march she meets Constance Mornington, and though the two girls are from very different backgrounds--Eveline is a grocer''s daughter while Connie is the daughter of a wealthy doctor--the pair soon become life-long friends. The girls are both forced to keep their political beliefs from their families: Eveline''s father doesn''t approve of the movement and believes a woman''s place is in the home, while Connie''s parents are more concerned with respectability. When Connie falls for a lowly bank clerk she is forced to make a choice between her family and the man she loves. Meanwhile Eveline finds herself attracted to a gentleman she meets at the suffragette meetings, but must determine whether Laurence Jones-Fairbrook is merely dallying with her affections.
