Rosie Thomas talks about her intrepid adventures and writing life, and takes you on a journey into the heart of her new historical novel, 'Daughter of the House.'

About 'Daughter of the House':
London 1919: The Great War is over and London lies on the brink of an uncertain future. With the misery and horror of war in the past, hope begins to emerge for the women who have waited at home, as for the first time, they have taken steps towards political, economic and personal independence. But the men who fought and survived the trenches believe the future is theirs by right, and any woman who has celebrated her freedom must now redouble her efforts to keep it.

Nancy Wix is just such a woman. Born into a down-at-heel family, Nancy has always known that the visions she has seen since she was a child will set her apart from her peers. A chance encounter with a gifted medium reveals a way in which she might take hold of her future and she grasps the opportunity with a desperate intensity – for this is the age of spiritualism, and Nancy’s gift will see her star rise in a time when decimated families are desperate to hold on to their dead sons.

As the roaring twenties dawn, Nancy strives to break free from the rigid bonds of society and find her own place. The only thing that could hold her back is her love for an unattainable man…
