Out of the Silence is the stunning tale of three women from very different worlds: Maggie Heffernan, a spirited working-class country girl, Elizabeth Hamilton, whose own disappointment in love has served only to strengthen her humanity and the remarkable Vida Goldstein, the suffragist who was to become the first woman to stand for Parliament. When Maggie's life descends into darkness after a terrible betrayal, the three women's lives collide.
Out of the Silence powerfully evokes the plight of women in the early 1900s – not least their limited options, whatever their class and education. However, at its heart this is a story of love – of love gone wrong, its compromises and disappointments, but ultimately of its extraordinary transformative power.
