Set in England in 1907, Impossible Saints is a
novel that burns as brightly as the suffrage movement it
depicts, with the emotional resonance of Tracy Chevalier and
Escaping the constraints of life as a village
schoolmistress, Lilia Brooke bursts into London and into
Paul Harris’s orderly life, shattering his belief that women
are gentle creatures who need protection. Lilia wants to
change women’s lives by advocating for the vote, free
unions, and contraception. Paul, an Anglican priest, has a
big ambition of his own: to become the youngest dean of St.
John’s Cathedral. Lilia doesn’t believe in God, but she’s
attracted to Paul’s intellect, ethics, and dazzling smile.
As Lilia finds her calling in the militant Women’s Social
and Political Union, Paul is increasingly driven to rise in
the church. They can’t deny their attraction, but they know
they don’t belong in each other’s worlds. Lilia would rather
destroy property and serve time in prison than see her
spirit destroyed and imprisoned by marriage to a clergyman,
while Paul wants nothing more than to settle down and keep
Lilia out of harm’s way. Paul and Lilia must reach their
breaking points before they can decide whether their love is
worth fighting for.
