The Iris Woodmore Mysteries
The 1920s is a time of contrasts and change – a dangerous combination that leads to murder...
The Great War is over, the suffragettes have disbanded, and a new decade is beginning.
March 1920, and Iris Woodmore is a journalist with a hot new story. For the first time in history, two women are standing in a by-election competing to become the third woman to take a seat in Parliament.
Iris accompanies one of the candidates to a debate in the House of Commons. But it’s a place that holds painful memories. In May 1914, Iris’s mother died there when she fell into the River Thames during a daring suffragette protest.
In the shadow of Big Ben, a waterman tells Iris her mother didn’t fall – she jumped. Iris tries to find the suffragette who was with her mother on that fateful day, only to discover she disappeared shortly after the protest and has been missing for six years.
Desperate to know the reason behind that fatal jump, Iris’s investigation leads her to Crookham Hall, an ancestral home where hidden secrets lead to murder.
The Suffragette's Daughter introduces a new sleuth for a new era.
“The story is full of mystery, intrigue and twists, and Iris is a great lead character you can really get behind.”
“Michelle Salter does an impeccable job of researching the time period for the setting of the book in 1914 and 1920.”
