Foxden Acres, Recently Read, The Independent

Foxden Acres, Recently Read in the Independent, online 
Researching The Women's Suffrage movement, for a possible article for St. Peter's Review, I Googled Emily Davidson. While reading about her in the Independent, I had a pleasant shock. Halfway down the page on the right hand side is 'Recently Read.' There's a pic of me and link to Foxden Acres on FB. There are also comments from author friends Elaine Everest, Bari Watts and Rebecca Woodhead.

 She was described as the most misunderstood woman of the 20th century. 
For the ruling establishment of post-Edwardian Britain she was undoubtedly one of the most dangerous.
