1896. Tirzah, Sophia and Polly are best friends who’ve left boarding school and gone back to very different lives. Polly is teaching in an orphanage. Sophia is looking for a rich husband at the London Season. And Tirzah is stuck acting as an unpaid companion to her grandmother. In a series of letters, they share their hopes, their frustrations, their dramas… and their romances. Can these three very different young women find happiness? Sally Nicholls talks about her latest novel, and the joys and challenges of writing historical fiction for young adults.
