Loosely based on the work of Marie Stopes, this version sees Dr Amber Haldane take up the fight for contraception. Set in the 1920s, the passionate campaigner faces opposition, and support, in equal measure. This is a witty tale, laced with humour. The archaic practices of our ill-informed ancestors are laid bare for the amusement of today's sophisticated audience. A book with eyebrow-raising theories aplenty, plus H.G. Wells' presence to boot.
