Based on true events, this is the story of two women sealed in a bond of friendship, with a shared belief that everyone deserved a right to a living wage. One born affluent, beautiful and charming, the other relatively poor, homely in countenance and driven. Together they changed a society by standing up and fighting for what they believed in, even when for one of them, it would eventually lead to the hardest battle of all.

Dr Jean Debney was born in Birmingham in 1963, and brought up in Solihull. She studied for her first degree in Glass Design at Stourbridge College in the early eighties, before training as a Craft, Design and Technology teacher at Dudley Teacher Training College. This was followed by a successful teaching career of fifteen years, in the Midlands and Norfolk, during which time she completed her M.A. Ed.Man at the University of Wolverhampton. She then instigated and led a national project to increase recruitment of young people into Engineering. Subsequently, she has completed her Ed.D. thesis entitled; 'Engineered Careers', which examined women's lives as engineers. Her writing projects concentrate on revealing the silent histories of women as engineers, such as the munitions workers of Birmingham during WWII. Now she is researching the story of the Cradley Heath Chainmakers of 1910. Her preference is for undertaking academic research, which then informs her writing of historical fiction and narrative.
