A Time for Courage by Margaret Graham
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This was originally published as A Measure of Peace back in 1989 so is now made available again for a new audience, and deservedly so; it’s a splendid read, really good. It covers the suffragette movement, diamond mining in South Africa and the dreadful plight of the black workers and on into World War I and beyond. Eventful, dramatic and well written, it is a compulsive historical novel full of detail with strong characters and plenty of action. Highly recommended.

If you like Margaret Graham you might also like to read books by Anne Bennett, Lily Baxter and Rosie Goodwin.

Synopsis

A Time for Courage by Margaret Graham

This is a gripping story of courage in the face of a world in turmoil. It is previously published as A Measure of Peace. Born into a repressive Victorian household, Hannah Watson learns early of the need for courage and dignity - in the face of her father's tyranny. She soon follows her own path, to become a teacher and campaigner for women's rights. But standing up for her ideals brings Hannah savage penalties - and conflicts of loyalty. With the outbreak of war in 1914 Hannah is faced with new pressures: the joy of discovering the man she passionately loves, but the strains of knowing that his life is in constant danger.
