description

fervent supporters of Labour politics and the Garden City movement, were separated in 1916 when Frank was given his prison sentence for being a conscientious objector. They wrote to each other from November 1916 until April 1919, while Frank was incarcerated at Wandsworth and Bedford prisons. Lucy looked after their three children in Letchworth, and earned enough to keep the family afloat by keeping hens, collecting insurance premiums and taking in sewing. This unique collection of letters is important as a working-class record of wartime experience. These letters show how their shared ideology of a socialist pacifism upheld the couple in separation, planning for a better future in a more equal society for all. The letters give contemporary evidence of events on the Letchworth Home Front: spotting airships, food rationing, hearing the London air-raids, the arrival of ''Spanish flu'' in 1918, and the sufferings of the European civilian populations immediately after the war. For readers interested in the First World War, British politics, the Garden City movement, feminism and women''s emancipation, adult and workers'' education, Quakerism and pacifism.
Kate Macdonald is a literary historian and publisher, and taught for many years in several European universities.
