A suffragist’s story unfolds in the 1910s – 1920s in Edeana Malcolm’s novel, Tea at the Empress (Three Ocean Press $24.95). Victoria-based Edith is on a quest for professional success and personal freedom as she grapples with societal constraints and Victorian attitudes. Simultaneously, she is navigating a love interest in the distant European war theatre of World War I. Malcolm’s narrative weaves between twin timelines, unraveling family secrets that challenge Edith’s pursuit of a progressive future. All this takes place against the backdrop of political change, and the intersection of personal and political struggles for women in an evolving era. ‎ 9781988915401
