Historical

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 Jennifer Robson.

Escaping the constraints of life as a village schoolmistress, Lilia Brooke bursts into London and into Paul Harrisís orderly life, shattering his belief that women are gentle creatures who need protection. Lilia wants to change womenís 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. Johnís Cathedral. Lilia doesnít believe in God, but sheís attracted to Paulís intellect, ethics, and dazzling smile.

As Lilia finds her calling in the militant Womenís Social and Political Union, Paul is increasingly driven to rise in the church. They canít deny their attraction, but they know they donít belong in each otherís 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 harmís way. Paul and Lilia must reach their breaking points before they can decide whether their love is worth fighting for.
