The Button Maker's Daughter- Merryn Allingham
With rumblings of war, a disgruntled uncle and parents who are determined to marry her off Elizabeth senses that change is coming then she meets Aiden a young architects assistant, who has dreams of heading to Canada.
With echoes if Downton Abbey, I still quite enjoyed the book as the character Elizabeth is likable and seems to want more for herself, a future as an artist and to be free to vote and to marry whoever she wants. It is hard to imagine how our own lives may have been so different living a century ago and how much for dom we take for granted. 4/5
