Polly Waldron Shiver



Over the cobbles of a rich capital – a London alight with the promise of change – resourceful Alice lands herself a position with a family of self-proclaimed radicals. Big bellies, glittering gatherings and perspiration ensue. But this emerging world is a tricky game to navigate and the new rules cannot be followed by all without consequence. Based on the totally unfounded tale of her great-great-grandmother, 'magnetic' (Telegraph) Polly Waldron serves up this rags-to-radicals tale that loosens the seams of 1913's London.
