Kirsteen Margaret Oliphant

£7.99

Product description

Kirsteen is the tale of a young woman from and old but impoverished Argyllshire family who escapes her domineering father and seeks her independence.
Kirsteen's options appear to be unpaid drudgery at home, or a loveless marriage. Rejecting both, she escapes to London where she makes a living through her own innate craft and skill.
Though scorned by her family for choosing to work as a mantua-maker, Kirsteen becomes highly successful in the life she carves out for herself.
Kirsteen is a startlingly modern novel whose powerful voice, narrative drive and ironic exposure of injustice and hypocrisy provide a fascinating perspective on women in Victorian society.
